NORTHFIELD, Ill. (CBSMiami/AP) — Kraft Foods is recalling various cottage cheese products which were shipped to stores throughout the United States.
Company officials announced the recall Saturday, May 17th.
Some ingredients used in Knudsen Cottage Cheese, Breakstone’s Cottage Cheese, SimplyKraft Cottage Cheese and Daily Chef Cottage Cheese were not stored in accordance with proper temperature standards at a Tulare, California, manufacturing facility, they said.
While unlikely, the failure to properly store ingredients might have created conditions that could lead to premature spoilage and food-borne illness, Kraft said. The Northfield, Illinois, company voluntarily recalled 1.2 million cases of the cottage cheese as a precaution.
The products, with a coded date between May 9 and July 23 stamped on them. The codes can be found on the cup bottoms or on top of the packages.
Anyone who purchased these products should not eat them. They can be returned to the stores where they were bought for exchanges or full refunds.
