Kraft Recalls Cheese Slices Over Possible Choking Hazard
Parents and cheese lovers of all ages should check the refrigerator.
Kraft says its recalling 36,000 cases of individually-wrapped cheese singles because part of the wrapper could become a choking hazard. According to CNN:
The recall includes certain 3- and 4-pound packages of American and white American slices, Kraft said. Those affected have a "best when used by" date between December 29, 2015, and January 4, 2016, followed by the manufacturing code "S54" or "S55."
"A thin strip of the individual packaging film may remain adhered to the slice after the wrapper has been removed," Kraft said. "If the film sticks to the slice and is not removed, it could potentially cause a choking hazard."
The company says it's received 10 complaints and three reports of choking. Anyone with a package included in the recall should return it to the store for an exchange or a refund.
