On March 17, Kraft Food Groups voluntarily recalled 242,000 cases of their original flavor Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner due to the possibility some boxes may contain small pieces of metal.
According to a report by CBC News, Kraft macaroni and cheese products sold in Canada were not affected. The recalled boxes, which are marked with the code “C2”, have a best when used by date that ranges from September 18, 2015 through October 11, 2015.
The recalled products were sold only in the US, Puerto Rico, some Caribbean and South American countries. But not in Canada.
The recall includes 205-gram boxes of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese that were sold in packages of three, four and five, as well as boxes that were sold individually.
On March 17, Kraft Food Groups said they had eight cases of incidents of consumers finding metal in the boxes. The company was not aware of any injuries and says consumers should not eat the product, but instead, return it to the store where they bought it for a full refund.
