Kraft Recalls 6.5 Million Boxes of Macaroni and Cheese That Contain Metal

Kraft recalled nearly 850,000 cases of its most beloved brands because customers found metal in the boxes

It’s all fun, games, and melted cheese, until a childhood staple turns on us.

That’s the way the Cheddar melts. Kraft has issued an enormous nationwide recall of 6.5 million boxes of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese because several customers complained of finding metal parts in the boxes. The boxes, which all have a C2 label on the bottom and sell-by dates ranging from Sept. 18, 2015 through Oct. 11, 2015, were sold in the United States, Puerto Rico, and in some countries in the Caribbean and South America. Approximately eight customers called Kraft to complain about the metal traces, although no injuries were reported.

"Consumers who purchased this product should not eat it," Kraft said in a statement. "We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed.”

Customers are advised to return the damaged products for a full refund. This isn’t the only recent major Kraft recall. Last May, Kraft recalled 1.2 million cases of cottage cheese due to a sell-by date printing error.
