    Kraft says certain packages of its American Singles cheese product should be returned due to a possible storage issue with one of its ingredients. (Published Sunday, Aug 31, 2014)

    Kraft is voluntarily recalling 7,691 cases of four varieties of its regular American Singles cheese product.

    The recalled products have a "Best if Used By" date of Feb. 20, 2015, and Feb. 21, 2015.

    Kraft traced the recall back to one of the company's suppliers. Kraft Foods Group Inc., which is based in Northfield, Illinois, said the supplier did not store an ingredient used in the cheese product at the company's standards.

    Kraft said it's unlikely but the product could spoil prematurely, and it could lead to food-borne illness. However, Kraft said no one has reported getting sick.

    Kraft spokesman Russ Dyer said the company issued a nationwide recall, but he can't specifically cite a city or state that received the potentially problematic cheese.

    "We can tell you that very little product was shipped, so there is a limited amount of product, if any, on shelf," Dyer said.

    Kraft said you can return the cheese to the store you purchased it at for a refund. Customers can also call Kraft at 800-396-5512.

    Below is a list of package codes associated with the recall.
