Kraft Cottage Cheese Sold in Local Stores Could Cause “Food Borne Illness”
If you enjoy a little cottage cheese with your breakfast or as a snack with some fruit, you might want to put your spoon down and take a look at the container it came in because Kraft has issued a major recall.
Some ingredients used in Knudsen Cottage Cheese, Breakstone’s Cottage Cheese, Simply Kraft Cottage Cheese and Daily Chef Cottage Cheese we’re stored at the proper temperature and if eaten, could cause some not so fun “food borne illness” to the eater.
The chances are slim, but because the product wasn’t stored at the right temperature, there’s still a slight chance that some of the cottage cheese could spoil before the date stamped on the container and that’s where the not fun food borne illness comes in.So, just to be on the safe side, Kraft has recalled 1.2 million cases of the improperly stored cottage cheese.
The products part of the recall have a date stamp on the containers between May 9 and July 23. If you’re looking for the date stamp, you’ll find it on the bottom of the cup or on the top of the package. If you’ve got a bad container, don’t eat it! Return it to the store where you bought it or call Kraft at 1-800-396-6307 between 9am and 6pm.
