Kraft Foods Group has voluntarily recalled select cottage cheese products due to out-of-standard storage temperatures, the company announced on its website Saturday.
Approximately 1.2 million cases of affected product were shipped to customers across the US. The affected products were not distributed outside of the US.
The recall involvesselected Knudsen Cottage Cheese, Breakstone’s Cottage Cheese, Simply Kraft Cottage Cheese and Daily Chef Cottage Cheese products, according to the release.
It was not immediately clear if any illnesses have been reported.
Affected products all have code dates from May 9, 2014 through July 23, 2014.
Consumers who purchased any of the voluntarily recalled cottage cheeses were asked not to eat the product and to return the item to the store where it was purchased.
The recalled products all came from a manufacturing facility in Tulare, Calif., which has since ceased production and distribution of the affected products while the company addresses the problem.
Consumers can find the code date on the bottom of the cup or the top of the package. Simply Kraft products with a plant code of 36-2158 on the cups or a “W” in the case code (e.g., “W 21 JUL 2014”) are not affected. Simply Kraft products subject to the recall are only those with a plant code of 06-245 on the bottom of the cup and case code date without any “W” (e.g., “21 JUL 2014”).
No other Knudsen, Breakstone’s, Simply Kraft or Daily Chef products are impacted by this recall.
The Tulare, California, manufacturing facility, where all of the affected products were produced, has ceased production and distribution of the affected products as the company works to address the problem.
Consumers who purchased any of these products should not eat them. They should return them to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers also can contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-396-6307 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. (Eastern).
