Kraft Heinz Company expands voluntary wrapped American slice recall

The Kraft Heinz Company has expanded the voluntary recall of individually-wrapped American slices due to the potential for a thin strip of packaging film remaining attached to the slice after the wrapper is removed. If the film sticks to the slice and is not removed, it could become a choking hazard.

Here are the new varieties included in the recall (Product Name: Best by date, code):

  • 4 LB Kraft Singles American: 13 DEC 15 S54-18 FEB 16 S54

The company is taking this action as a result of two new consumer complaints of choking in connection with the packaging issue.

Approximately 335,000 additional cases of the recalled products were shipped by Kraft Heinz to retailers in the following countries:

  • United States/Puerto Rico
  • Anguilla
  • Bahamas
  • Belize
  • Bermuda
  • Cayman Islands/Grand Cayman
  • Netherland Antilles
  • Saint Kitts and Nevis
  • South Korea
  • St. Lucia
  • British Virgin Islands

Customers that purchased the product should not eat it, and return it to the store where it was purchased for an exchange or full refund. If you’re in the US and Puerto Rico, you can also contact Kraft Heinz Consumer Relations for a full refund at 1-800-442-3101, Monday through Friday from 9AM-6PM ET (6AM-3PM PT).
