NEW YORK Kraft Foods is recalling 260 cases of Velveeta cheese sold to Wal-Mart stores in 12 states Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
The consumer package code for the recalled batch is 021000611614. The packages also have a date stamp that reads 17 DEC 2014, and the time frame is between 10:54 and 14:35.
Kraft said it is recalling the cheese because it did not contain appropriate levels of sorbic acid needed for preserving the product.
Consumers who purchased a recalled product should return it to the Wal-Mart where they bought it for an exchange or full refund. They can also call Kraft’s customer relations number at 800-310-3704.
