Kraft Issues Major Recall of Macaroni & Cheese After Metal Found in Food

By: Rich Hosford

We have another recall to report, coming on the heels of the Trader Joe’s recall of walnut products this week. 

According to the Food & Drug Administration, Kraft Foods Group is voluntarily recalling approximately 242,000 cases of the Original flavor of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner – due to the possibility that some boxes may contain small pieces of metal. 

The product being recalled is the 7.25 ounce boxed dinner with “Best Used By” dates between September 18, 2015 and October 11, 2015 with the code “C2” directly below the date on the box. 

Some of these products have also been packed in multi-pack units that have a range of different code dates and manufacturing codes on the external packaging (box or shrink-wrap), depending on the package configuration. Click this link to see all of those configurations


The dinners being recalled were shipped to customers in the U.S. and several other countries. 

No other sizes, varieties or pasta shapes and no other packaging configurations are included in this recall. And no products with manufacturing codes other than “C2” below the code date on the individual box are included in this recall.

“Kraft has received eight consumer contacts about this product from the impacted line within this range of code dates and no injuries have been reported,” a statement from Kraft states. “We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed.”

Consumers who purchased this product should not eat it. They should return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund. Customers can also contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-816-9432 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. (Eastern) for a full refund.
