Kraft’s Velveeta Cheese recalled due to risk of premature spoilage

American grocery manufacturing and processing conglomerate Kraft issued a consumer-level voluntary recall of its Velveeta Original Pasteurized Recipe Cheese product because the cheese might not contain enough preservatives to avoid early spoilage, Tech Times reported on June 21.

In a statement issued on June 19, Kraft stated that the products may have been distributed to different Walmart stores across 12 different states, including Michigan. Results from the product sample tests revealed the affected products might not contain adequate amount of sorbic acid, a food preservative essential to preventing premature spoilage.

The recalled cheese bear the details 10021000611611 as UPC code, 021000611614 as consumer package UPC code, and a date code and time stamp of Dec. 17, 2014 and 09:34 – 13:15, respectively.
