Oct. 9, 2012—Kraft Foods Group recalled its jalapeno variety of string cheese, because a thin plastic film from the package might remain adhered to the product. If the film sticks to the cheese and isn’t removed, it could cause a choking hazard.
The string-cheese product was sold in a 12-ounce bag that has UPC 2100002977 and contains 12 individually wrapped 1-ounce packages. The product has a “best when used by” date of 23 Nov 2012. Consumers can find the date on the back of the 12-ounce package in the lower right corner.
No other code dates of Kraft Jalapeno String Cheese and no other varieties of Kraft String Cheese or any other Kraft Foods products are being recalled. The company received one consumer complaint. Cases of the affected product were shipped to customers across the United States.
Consumers who purchased the product shouldn’t eat it and should return it to the store of purchase for a product exchange or a full refund. Consumers can call Kraft Foods’ Consumer Relations department at 800/396-2133 Monday–Friday.
