Want Some Metal With That Kraft Mac & Cheese?


Today, Kraft Foods recalled 242,000 cases—or about 6.5 million boxes—of its signature macaroni and cheese after customers reported finding small pieces of metal in the product. Yummy!

Eight customers, like the one below, have found the metal, though no injuries have been reported.

According to a company press release, the recalled boxes are 7.25 oz, “Original Flavor” Macaroni & Cheese Dinner with expiration dates between September 18, 2015 and October 11, 2015, and they’re marked with the code “C2”  below the date (referring to the box’s production line). The boxes have been distributed across the United States and Puerto Rico, as well as some Caribbean and South American countries. The company’s statement read, “We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed,” and added, “Consumers who purchased this product should not eat it.”
