The Kraft Heinz corporation has announced a recall for selected Kraft Singles that may cause a choking hazard.

In order to prevent choking hazards, Kraft Heinz announced on Tuesday that it is recalling more than 83,000 containers of individually wrapped Kraft Singles American processed cheese slices.

The business, which has offices in Chicago and Pittsburgh, said that one of its wrapping machines experienced a short-term problem that allows a small strip of film to stay on the slice even after it has been taken out of the wrapper. Since then, the device has been repaired.

According to Kraft Heinz, the voluntary recall was started as a result of several consumer concerns. Six people reported experiencing gagging or choking due to the problem, but no significant illnesses or injuries have been reported, according to Kraft Heinz.

The 16-ounce Kraft Singles American Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product that has a "Best When Used By" date between January 10, 2024, and January 27, 2024 is subject to this recall. A 3-pound multipack of Kraft Singles American Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product with a "Best When Used By" date between January 9, 2024, and January 13, 2024 is also included in the recall.

According to Kraft Heinz, customers who purchased those goods should not use them and should instead return them to the retailer where they were acquired for a swap or a refund. Customers can also get in touch with Kraft Heinz at 1-800-280-8252 to find out if a product is included in the recall and to get a refund.
