NORTHFIELD, IL (WCSC) - Kraft Foods Group announced a voluntarily recall Tuesday involving approximately 242,000 cases of select code dates and manufacturing codes of the Original flavor of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner.
The recall is because of the possibility some boxes may contain small pieces of metal, the company stated in a press release.
The recalled product is limited to the 7.25-oz. size of the Original flavor of boxed dinner with the "Best When Used By" dates of September 18, 2015 through October 11, 2015, with the code "C2" directly below the date on each individual box.
The "C2" refers to a specific production line on which the affected product was made.
Some of these products have also been packed in multi-pack units that have a range of different code dates and manufacturing codes on the external packaging, depending on the package configuration.
The recalled product was shipped to customers in the U.S. and several other countries, excluding Canada. The affected dates of this product were sold in only these four configurations:
- 7.25 oz. box, Original flavor
- 3-pack box of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor
- 4-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor
- 5-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor
No other sizes, varieties or pasta shapes and no other packaging configurations are included in this recall.
No products with manufacturing codes other than "C2" below the code date on the individual box are included in this recall.
Kraft said it has received eight consumer contacts about this product from the impacted line within this range of code dates, but no injuries have been reported.
