The Kraft Heinz Company Expands Voluntary Recall of Wrapped American Slices

September 3, 2015

The original July 31, 2015 recall date has been expanded by The Kraft Heinz Company for the recall of select code dates and manufacturing codes of its individually-wrapped American cheese slices. A thin strip of the individual packaging film can possibly remain adhered to the cheese slice after the wrapper has been removed and could potentially cause a choking hazard.
