By Mike White     Jan 21, 2014 in Food
A total of 1.77 million pounds of “Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles" – "Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac” will be recalled by by Truitt Brothers Incorporated, a company in East Bernstadt, Kentucky. The recall was issued Sunday.
Fox News reported a press release from the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service stated the packaging on some products did not list two known allergens in its ingredients list — dried soy sauce and hydrolyzed soy protein.
During a routine quality check the error was discovered. The company reported it has not received any reports of adverse reactions because of the mislabeled products so far.
The Huffington Post reported the products have expiration dates of March 2 to October 23. They were shipped to Kraft retailers and Foods distribution centers throughout the world between May 2013 and January.
No other Kraft or Velveeta products are affected. Any consumer with questions can call the Kraft Foods consumer relations center at 1-800-396-5512.
CBS News reported the company became aware of the problem when someone discovered a label manufacturer accidentally sent labels with a mixture of correct and incorrect labels.
The product in question has a use by date of March 2, 2014 through October 23, 2014. The identifying case codes are 00210000432900, 00210000432910, 00210000432925, 00210000464000 and 00210000465100.
