NORTHFIELD, IL -- Kraft Foods Global, Inc. has issued a voluntary recall of three types of their Velveeta Shells & Cheese single-serve microwaveable cups. The recall, they say, is a precaution due to the possibility that there may be small, thin wire bristle pieces in the cups.
The items being recalled are the Velveeta Shells & Cheese Original Microwaveable Cups (singles and four packs of 2.39 oz. microwaveable cups) with a “Best When Used by Date” of May 16, 2012 and April 24, 2012 to May 16, 2012. Velveeta Shells & Cheese Made with 2% Milk Microwaveable Cups (singles and four packs of 2.19 oz. microwaveable cups) with a “Best When Used by Date” of March 25, 2012 to March 30, 2012 and March 29, 2012 to April 12, 2012. Velveeta Rotini & Cheese Broccoli Microwaveable Cups (2.44 oz. cup) with a “Best When Used By Date” of April 29, 2012 to May 14, 2012. The “Best When Used By Date” is on the bottom of the package.
There have been no reports of injuries or complaints at this time. The recall is being issued “out of an abundance of caution.”
Approximately 137,000 cases of the affected products have been shipped in the United States.
