Kraft Jalapeno String Cheese Recall announced for Packaging Concern

Kraft Jalapeno String Cheese recall - FDA

(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration announced a voluntary recall by Kraft for their Jalapeno flavored String Cheese products because the plastic film in the packaging could remain stuck to the food. The concern is that the plastic might put a person at risk of choking. Only the Kraft String Cheese with the Jalapeno flavor and the “Best if Used By” date of “23 NOV 2012” are involved in this recall.

The recall was announced after a consumer complained of the problem. Around 2,700 cases are involved in the recall. The recalled cheese was shipped across the United States, but not into Canada.

The Jalapeno string cheese comes packaged in a 12 ounce bag that has 12 individually 1-ounce-sized portions. The UPC code is 2100002977 and only the packages that have the “Best if Used by” date of November 23, 2012 are being recalled. The expiration date is on the back of the main 12-ounce bag in the lower-right corner. All other Kraft String Cheese is safe to eat.

Consumers who have the recalled string cheese with the matching UPC and date code should not eat the food. Instead, they can take the cheese back to the store to get either a new package or a full refund.
