Kraft Foods Group Inc. is voluntarily recalling some of its Kraft and Polly-O string cheese because they may spoil and change color before the expiration date on the packages.
The Northfield, Ill., company said Friday that about 735,000 cases of the affected products were shipped to customers in the U.S. They have "Best When Used By" dates from Oct. 25 through Feb. 11.
Kraft says it issued the recall after receiving several reports from consumers about cheese going bad. The company has ceased the production and distribution of the affected products and is investigating the problem. The affected products were made in a plant in Campbell, N.Y.
Consumers should not eat the recalled product and should return it for an exchange or refund.
For more information, contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-816-9432 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. (Eastern).
