Kraft Recalls 242,000 CASES of Mac and Cheese Because They Might Contain Metal

Bad news for those of you who like your mac and cheese near neon orange, you might want to look at the sides of your boxes because Kraft issued a voluntary recall yesterday after receiving complaints that customers found bits of metal in some of the boxes.

The offenders were sold both as standalone packs of mac and cheese as well as multi-packs and were available in the United States, Puerto Rico and some South American and Caribbean countries (none if it made it to Canada, so your “Kraft Dinner” is fine).

Check after the jump for full details.


From the press release:

The recalled product is limited to the 7.25-oz. size of the Original flavor of boxed dinner with the “Best When Used By” dates of September 18, 2015 through October 11, 2015, with the code “C2” directly below the date on each individual box. The “C2” refers to a specific production line on which the affected product was made.

Some of these products have also been packed in multi-pack units that have a range of different code dates and manufacturing codes on the external packaging (box or shrink-wrap), depending on the package configuration (see table below).

No other sizes, varieties or pasta shapes and no other packaging configurations are included in this recall. And no products with manufacturing codes other than “C2” below the code date on the individual box are included in this recall.

If you've bought some of the bad boxes, take them back to the store for a refund. You can also call Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-816-9432 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Eastern for a refund.
