Kraft recently announced the recall of 36,000 cases of Kraft Singles American and White American cheese due to a choking hazard. The cases contain 377,000 packages of Kraft Singles. The cheese was incorrectly packaged.
The cheese slices have the possibility that a thin strip of the individual packaging film could remain adhered to the slice of cheese after the wrapper has been removed. If the film sticks to the slice of cheese and is not removed, it could cause a choking hazard. Ten customers have reported the problem, and three of those customers have reported choking.
The recall applies to 3 pound and 4 pound sizes of Kraft Singles American and White American pasteurized prepared cheese product with a Best When Used By Date of 29 DEC 15 through 04 JAN 16, followed by the manufacturing code S54 or S55. Customers should return the cheese to a store for a full refund.
