Kraft Singles cheese recall

Posted August 3, 2015

Kraft Heinz is recalling 36,000 cases of Kraft Singles because of a possible choke hazard. According to their press release, Kraft is "voluntarily recalling select code dates and manufacturing codes of Kraft Singles individually-wrapped slices due to the possibility that a thin strip of the individual packaging film may remain adhered to the slice after the wrapper has been removed. If the film sticks to the slice and is not removed, it could potentially cause a choking hazard."

The recall only applies to select 3-Lb. and 4-Lb. packages of Kraft Singles.

See the press release below for details on the recalled packages.

NORTHFIELD, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 31, 2015-- The Kraft Heinz Company is voluntarily recalling select code dates and manufacturing codes of Kraft Singles individually-wrapped slices due to the possibility that a thin strip of the individual packaging film may remain adhered to the slice after the wrapper has been removed. If the film sticks to the slice and is not removed, it could potentially cause a choking hazard.

The recall applies to 3-lb. and 4-lb. 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.

The S54 and S55 codes refer to the two production lines on which the impacted product was made. The Best When Used By Date and Manufacturing Code are stamped on both the larger 3-lb. and 4-lb. boxes and the enclosed individual 1-lb. packages.

    Children are people too, also calling pasteurized prepared cheese product food stretches the definition of the word.

    stormwaterguy - I think the concern was that a thin layer of wrapper that was hard to see remained on the cheese even after the main wrapper was removed. Smaller kids may not see it and it is a choke hazard because of that.

    Are people too (low intelligence) or lazy that they can't remove the wrapper from their food?
