Northfield-based Kraft Foods Group is voluntarily recalling the Jalapeno variety of Kraft String Cheese with the Best When Used By date of 23 NOV 2012 as a precaution due to the possibility that a thin layer of plastic film from the package may remain adhered to the product.
If the film sticks to the cheese and is not removed, it could potentially cause a choking hazard.
The product is the Jalapeno Variety 12 oz. bag with 12 individual 1 oz. snacks with a code of 23 NOV 2012 2100002977. Consumers can find the Best When Used By date on the back of the package in the lower-right corner.
No other code dates of Kraft Jalapeno String Cheese and no other varieties of Kraft String Cheese or any other Kraft Foods products are being recalled, the company said.
There has been one consumer complaint. Approximately 2,700 cases of the affected product were shipped to customers across the United States. The affected product was not distributed in Canada.
Consumers who purchased the affected product should not eat it. They should return it to the store of purchase for an exchange or full refund. Consumers also can contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations Monday through Friday at 1-800-396-2133.
The affected product was produced in Campbell, N.Y.
