(FOX19) - Kraft Foods Group is voluntarily recalling some varieties of Kraft and Polly-O String Cheese and String Cheese Twists products.
Officials say the products may spoil before their "Best When Used By" code dates, leading to product discoloration. The affected products all have code dates from October 25, 2013 through February 11, 2014.
Approximately 735,000 cases of the affected product were shipped to customers across the United States. The affected product was not distributed in Canada.
The following varieties are being recalled:
Consumers can find the "Best When Used By" date on the back of multi-count packages toward the bottom. For string cheese products labeled for individual sale, the "Best When Used By" date is on the bottom front of the package.
No other Kraft or Polly-O String Cheese or String Cheese Twists products are being recalled, nor any other Kraft Foods or Polly-O products.
Kraft is conducting this recall after receiving several reports from consumers of premature spoilage of some of the string cheese products listed above. Kraft stopped the production and distribution of the affected products from the specific facility in Campbell, New York as the company continues its investigation.
Consumers who purchased any product listed above should not eat it. Officials say they should return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund.
Consumers also can contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-816-9432 between 9 am and 6 pm (Eastern).
