Kraft recalls 36,000 cases of singles because one side of the wrapper could stick to the cheese and pose a choking hazard.
According to Kraft, the recall affects three and four-pound packages of American and White American slices with a sell-by date of December 29 2015 to January 4 2016.
Each affected batch has a manufacturing code of ‘S54′ or ‘S55′ on it and the firm is urging consumers who purchased the goods to return them immediately. The company said it had already received 10 consumer complaints and three reports of choking due to the wrappers not coming off the cheese completely.
Having once eaten a single slice of Kraft; “pasteurized prepared cheese product” (never, ever again!) I could only presume that the additional slice of plastic wrapper would add texture and flavour to the product? (Kraft isn’t permitted to refer to Singles as “cheese” because the word indicates that a product is made with at least 51% real cheese.) Hence; “pasteurized prepared cheese product!” The ingredients being; Cheddar cheese (milk, cheese culture, salt, enzymes). Whey. Water. Protein concentrate. Milk. Sodium citrate. Calcium phosphate. Milk fat. Gelatin. Salt. Sodium phosphate. Lactic acid as a preservative. Annatto and paprika extract (color.) Enzymes. Vitamin A palmitate. Cheese culture. Vitamin D3.
Although there are over 700 different varieties of cheese over here in the UK – my preference is for a mild Cheddar, or a nice piece of Wensleydale. But never, ever, Vegan cheese! I’d rather eat several slices of Kraft “pasteurized prepared cheese product” wrapped around a chunk of Stinking Bishop! Yours_Aye.
