Kraft Recalls 6.5 Million Boxes Of Macaroni & Cheese

Are you a fan of Kraft’s Macaroni and Cheese dinners? Have you bought some recently and are looking forward to eating them? Well, stop and don’t.

Kraft Foods Group has just issued a rather large recall for four configurations of its Macaroni & Cheese products after eight customers contacted them and complained. This wasn’t about them tasting bad or the packaging being open. It seems that pieces of metal have somehow made their way into the food production line and Kraft really doesn’t want you eating that.

Kraft points out that no one has reported being injured by these pieces of metal so far, but that obviously you should avoid eating the affected products. So what are they?


The specific product Kraft is recalling is the 7.25-oz Original flavor Macaroni & Cheese Dinner with the “Best When Used By” dates of between September 18, 2015 and October 11, 2015 listed on the pack. The boxes also have the code “C2″ printed underneath the date. The four configurations sold are as follows:

  • 7.25 oz. box, Original flavor
  • 3-pack box of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor
  • 4-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor
  • 5-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor

Here’s the specifics Kraft has shared about the product recall so you can check if you have any of the affected products:


In total some 242,000 cases may contain the pieces of metal. That’smore than 6.5 million boxes total. They have been sold by Kraft across the US, but also distributed to Puerto Rico, some Caribbean, and some South American countries. If you find you purchased one of these products, then call Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-816-9432 for a full refund.
