Don’t eat any Kraft Macaroni & Cheese until you check the code on the box first! Kraft Foods has launched a recall of nearly 6.5 million boxes of original flavor Kraft Macaroni & Cheese because some of the packages may contain small pieces of metal.
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.
The recalled product was shipped by Kraft to customers nationwide in the U.S. The product was also distributed in Puerto Rico and some Caribbean and South American countries — but not in Canada. A complete list of affected products is available on the Kraft website.
So far Kraft knows of eight incidents in which consumers reported finding metal in the packages but there are no known injuries due to the metal. Kraft states that they “deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed.”
