Kraft cheese recall

Krafts Food Groups has recently issued a recall of some of its popular cheese products. It’s time to check to seek what’s in your refrigerator and to take action if you have any of the recalled cheese items.

The voluntary recall involves various types of Kraft and Polly-O String Cheese and String Cheese Twists items totaling about 735,000 cases. These cheese items may spoil before the stated “Best When Used By” dates on the package and begin to discolor.

To see if you have any of the string cheese foods in your refrigerator, see the following list of recalled items. You can find the “Best When Used By” date on the bottom front of cheese available in individual products or on the bottom back of multi-count packages.

The list includes the product names, UPC codes, size of the package, and the "Best When Used By" date. No other Kraft cheese items have been recalled, only those on this list.

The recalled string cheese products were produced in Campbell, New York, and all production and distribution of the cheese items throughout the United States have ceased until the issue is resolved. If you have a recalled string cheese product, do not eat it or give it to your pets.

Instead, return it to the store where you purchased it for a refund or an exchange item. For further information you can call Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-816-9432 between the hours of 9AM and 6PM Eastern time.

No illnesses have been reported associated with this cheese recall.

Kraft cheese products have been in the news recently on a different topic: the use of artificial colorings, yellow 5 and yellow 6, in its popular macaroni and cheese items. A petition is being circulated by Change.org asking consumers to help stop the use of these potentially dangerous food additives.

Cheese is concentrated milk, fats and loads of salt. Give it a miss altogether is so much better for your health. Many cheeses in the US also contain food coloring (Annatto) which could be an allergen to many people. Not a healthy food at all!
Yeah, the yellow coloring is a big issue with me. Why do they want to do that to us?? It's criminal.
Your FDA allows it, like it allows so many other things that are detrimental to health. DO NOT RELY on the FDA for the right decision or information. More than likely they don't want to bite the hand(s) that feed them.
I know - very scary.
