In a major food recall, Kraft Foods has announced a recall on almost 250,000 cases of its macaroni and cheese product. All the boxes potentially contain small metal pieces.
The well-recognized yellow and blue boxes of Kraft macaroni and cheese included in the recall have ‘use by’ dates of Sept. 8 through Oct.11, 2015. Each potentially tainted box will have the code ‘C2‘ on it. The product is in a 7.25 ounce box and is sold either individually or in the three box pack. Dan Newlin suggested that the Kraft product was sold everywhere in the United States, Puerto Rico and some areas of the Caribbean.
So far, eight people have found small pieces of metal in their recently purchased boxes of Kraft macaroni and cheese, but no injuries have been reported. People who have purchased the product recently should return it to the store from where it was purchased for a full refund.
It’s not yet known how the metal pieces got into the macaroni and cheese product and consumers are advised to not eat the macaroni product.
