Kraft Heinz Recalls American Cheese SlicesKraft Heinz Recalls American Cheese Slices
The voluntary recall is for individually wrapped Kraft Singles and 3 lb. multipacks.
September 21, 2023
Kraft Heinz has recalled approximately 83,800 cases of individually-wrapped Kraft Singles American processed cheese slices.
The voluntary recall comes as a precaution after a temporary issue developed on one of the company's wrapping machines, making it possible that a thin strip of the individual film may remain on the slice after the wrapper has been removed. If the film sticks to the slice and is not removed, it could potentially cause a gagging or choking hazard.
Only Kraft Singles American processed cheese slices with the case/package information below are affected. No other varieties or sizes are included in the recall.
The issue was discovered after Kraft received several consumer complaints about finding the plastic stuck to a slice, including six complaints of consumers saying they choked or gagged in connection with the issue. No injuries or serious health issues have been reported.
Kraft Heinz has fixed the machine that wrapped the affected slices and all other processing machines have been thoroughly inspected.
Products included in the recall include 16 oz. Kraft Singles American Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product with an individual package UPC of 0 2100061526 1 and a “Best When Used By” date of 10 JAN 24 through 27 JAN 24. Individual packages in this recall will contain an S and 72 in the Manufacturing code.
Also included in the recall are 3 lb. multipacks of Kraft Singles American Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product with a carton UPC of 0 2100060491 3 and a “Best When Used By” of 09 JAN 2024 through 13 JAN 2024 and 16 JAN 2024.
Consumers who purchased the cheese should not consume them and can return them to the store where purchased for an exchange or refund. Consumers can contact Kraft Heinz from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday, at 1-800-280-8252 to see if a product is part of the recall and to receive reimbursement.
