Manufacturer Kraft Heinz discovered that one of the machines that individually wraps Kraft Singles American processed cheese slices permits thin strips of film to say on the slices even after removal of the wrapper. The food company announced a voluntary recall of more than 83,800 cases these slices. It’s believed the strips of film that stays on the cheeses present a potential choking danger or gagging hazard. The director of food safety and testing at Consumer Reports commented that any complicated machine requires adjustments to pieces of the equipment such that if adjustments aren’t right or in alignment with the specs, the machine may not do its job correctly, causing food safety problems.
