Kraft Foods is recalling 242,000 packages of its original flavor Kraft Macaroni & Cheese because some of the boxes may contain bits of metal.
According to Kraft, most of the 7.25-ounce ounces that have been deemed questionable are marked with the code “C2” right below the “best when used by” dates, and the dates range from Sept. 18, 2015, through Oct. 11, 2015.
During a conference call on Tuesday, Kraft was careful to note that some of the other potentially-infected boxes may have a different code and “best by” date if they came in a multi-pack unit.
All of the recalled boxes were sold across the United States, Puerto Rico and South America. None were sold in Canada.
There have been eight reported cases of customers finding metal bits in their macaroni and cheese – but none have resulted in injuries thus far.
"We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed," Kraft said in a prepared statement.
