Kraft recalls 242,000 cases of macaroni and cheese

ST. GEORGE – Kraft Foods Group announced Tuesday it is voluntarily recalling approximately 242,000 cases of select code dates and manufacturing codes of original flavor Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner due to the possibility that some boxes may contain small pieces of metal.

The recall is limited to the 7.25-ounce size of the original flavor of boxed dinner with the “Best When Used By” dates of Sept. 18, 2015, through Oct. 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 multipack units that have a range of different code dates and manufacturing codes on the external box or shrink-wrap packaging, depending on the package configuration (see table below).

Recalled product was shipped to customers in the United States and several other countries, excluding Canada. The affected dates of this product were sold in only these four configurations:

  • 7.25-ounce box, original flavor
  • Three-pack box of those 7.25-ounce boxes, original flavor
  • Four-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25-ounce boxes, original flavor
  • Five-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25-ounce boxes, original flavor

The following is being recalled:

No other sizes, varieties or pasta shapes and no other packaging configurations are included in this recall, according to information from Kraft. Additionally, no products with manufacturing codes other than “C2” below the code date on the individual box are included in this recall.

Kraft has received eight consumer contacts about this product from the impacted line within this range of code dates, and no injuries have been reported.

“We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed,” Kraft Foods Group said in a press release.

The recalled product was shipped by Kraft to customers nationwide in the U.S. The product was also distributed to Puerto Rico and some Caribbean and South American countries – but not to Canada.

Consumers who purchased this product should not eat it. They should return it to the store where the product was purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers may also contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 800-816-9432 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EDT for a full refund.
