[www.inewsguyana.com] – Kraft Foods is recalling 242,000 cases of original flavour Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, which amounts to 6.5 million boxes out of concern that some of the boxes contain small pieces of metal.
The boxes have expiration dates ranging from Sept. 18, 2015 through Oct. 11, 2015 and are marked with the code “C2.” The “C2” refers to a specific production line on which the affected product was made.
According to a statement on the Company’s website, they were sold throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico, and in some countries in the Caribbean and South America. A complete list of affected products is posted on Kraft’s website.
The recall is limited to the 7.25 ounce boxes that were sold individually and in packs of three, four and five. The company says no other varieties, pasta shapes or package sizes are affected by the recall.
Kraft Foods Group says it is aware of eight incidents of consumers finding metal in the boxes, but hasn’t been informed of any injuries.
The company says consumers shouldn’t eat the macaroni and should return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund.
Locally, the Guyana Food and Drug Department is expected to launch a campaign to ensure that the Macaroni and Cheese is recalled.
