Kraft Foods Group Voluntarily Recalls Small Quantity of Velveeta Original Pasteurized Recipe Cheese Product Due to Low Levels of Preservative Ingredient

Isolated Recall Limited to 260 Cases of Product Shipped to Select Walmart Stores in Midwest

NORTHFIELD, Ill.—(ENEWSPF)–June 19, 2014 – Kraft Foods Group is voluntarily recalling 260 cases of Velveeta Original Pasteurized Recipe Cheese Product because it does not contain appropriate levels of sorbic acid, a preservative ingredient. While unlikely, the affected product could spoil prematurely and/or lead to food borne illness. Therefore, the company is issuing this recall as a precaution.

This recall affects one batch of product made on one manufacturing line during a few hours of production. The product was shipped to three Walmart distribution centers and may have been redistributed to stores in up to 12 Midwest states.

The affected products may have been shipped to Walmart stores in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. These products were not shipped outside of the U.S.

The following specific batch of product is being recalled:

32 OZ (2 LB) Velveeta Original Pasteurized Recipe Cheese Product

Consumer Package Code Date/Time Range: 17 DEC 201409:34 – 13:15 Only

Consumers can find the case code date on the side of the package. No other products outside this time period on this case code date are affected by this recall, nor are any other Kraft or Velveeta products affected.

The affected product was identified during a review of finished product samples. The company is taking action to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

Consumers who purchased any of these products should not eat them. They should return them to the store where they purchased them for an exchange or full refund. Consumers also can contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-310-3704 between 9 am and 6 pm (Eastern).
