(KELO AM) - After receiving reports from consumers of premature spoilage, some Kraft and Polly-O string cheese and string cheese twist products are being recalled.
Some products include 16-ounce Kraft Mozzarella String Cheese, Kraft Low Moisture Part Skim String Cheese in 12-ounce and 24-ounce sizes, and 10-ounce Kraft 2% String Cheese
These products may spoil before their “Best When Used By” code dates, leading to product discoloration. The affected products all have code dates from October 25, 2013 through February 11, 2014. Kraft has ceased the production and distribution of the affected products from the relevant facility as the company continues its investigation to resolve the problem.
Approximately 735,000 cases of the affected product were shipped to customers across the United States.
Consumers can find the “Best When Used By” date on the back of multi-count packages toward the bottom. For string cheese products labeled for individual sale, the “Best When Used By” date is on the bottom front of the package.
Consumers who purchased any product listed should not eat it. They should return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund.
