More than 200,000 cases of Kraft macaroni and cheese dinners have been recalled voluntarily by the company. The recall took effect as a result of several complaints logged to the company about dinners containing pieces of metal. There have been a total of eight complaints but no injuries have been reported.
We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed,” Kraft said in a statement.
6.5 million boxes of Kraft’s macaroni and cheese dinners are covered by the recall. Boxes have been shipped throughout the U.S. and to several other countries. The recall is not currently listed under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Recalls, Market Withdrawals, and Safety Alerts webpage.
The recalled product was shipped by Kraft to customers nationwide in the U.S. The product was also distributed to Puerto Rico and some Caribbean and South American countries — but not to Canada,” Kraft’s statement continues.
The specific product recalled by Kraft is the 7.25 ounce box in the original flavor. Boxes will include a code, C2, under the expiration date which identifies the production line effected by the recall. The products will have a best used by date of between Sept. 18 to Oct. 11, 2015. Affected boxes may be found within multi-box packs of three, four, and five boxes within a pack. Consumers be advised to check each box within a pack as boxes from numerous production lines may be packed together.
Consumers who purchased this product should not eat it. They should return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund,” said Kraft.
