Kraft Foods Group Inc. is recalling about 242,000 cases of its signature macaroni and cheese after customers reported finding small pieces of metal in the boxes.
Kraft was contacted by eight customers about the situation, though no injuries have been reported, the company said in a statement Tuesday. The recalled products were shipped nationwide in the U.S., as well as to some South American and Caribbean countries, Kraft said.
“Consumers who purchased this product should not eat it,” Kraft said. “They should return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund.”
Kraft said the recall was limited to 7.25-ounce boxes of original-flavor macaroni and cheese with an expiration date between Sept. 18 and Oct. 11. The boxes also feature the code “C2,” which refers to a specific production line, directly below the date. Some of the recalled pasta was also included in multipacks, Kraft said.
“We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed,” the company said.
