Kraft has voluntarily recalled 36,000 cases of Kraft Singles

The Kraft Heinz Company has voluntarily recalled 36,000 cases of Kraft Singles because they might make you choke. Not on the cheese, though — the company says the wrapping on the individual cheese slices may present a choking hazard.

In their words: “A thin strip of the individual packaging film may remain adhered to the slice after the wrapper has been removed. If the film sticks to the slice and is not removed, it could potentially cause a choking hazard.”

The recall applies to 3-pound and 4-pound sizes of Kraft Singles American and White American pasteurized prepared cheese product. The company is recalling the boxes of cheese based on the “best when used by” date code on the packaging:

  • Four-pound box, Kraft American Singles — with sell-by dates between Dec. 29, 2015, to Jan. 1, 2016, (code after date reads S54 or S55)
  • Three-pound box, Kraft American Singles — with sell-by dates between Dec. 29, 2015, to Jan. 4, 2016, (code after date reads S54 or S55)
  • Four-pound box, Kraft White American Singles — with sell-by dates between Jan. 2, 2016, to Jan. 3, 2016, (code after date reads S54 or S55)
  • Three-pound box, Kraft White American Singles — with a sell-by date of Jan. 2, 2016, (code after date reads S54 or S55)

This isn’t the first time this year Kraft has recalled some of its products. In March, it recalled some of its Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinners because of the possibility that some boxes contain small bits of metal.
