NEW YORK (CBS NEWS) – Kraft has issued a warning about some Kraft Singles cheese slices that could put consumers at risk of choking.
The company announced a voluntary recall affecting 36,000 cases of American cheese slices sold in 3-lb. and 4-lb. boxes.
The problem is that a thin strip of the clear plastic packaging film could adhere to the cheese even after you remove the wrapper. The company said it has received at least ten complaints, including three reports of people choking.
The recall applies only to 3-lb. and 4-lb. sizes of Kraft Singles American and White American pasteurized prepared cheese product, stamped with a “Best When Used By” date of 29 DEC 15 through 04 JAN 16, followed by the Manufacturing Code S54 or S55.
