Because I had purchased some Kraft Macaroni and Cheese online from Amazon recently, I received this email notice yesterday concerning a recall of the product.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — March 17, 2015 — NORTHFIELD, Ill. — Kraft Foods Group is voluntarily recalling approximately 242,000 cases of select code dates and manufacturing codes of the Original flavor of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner – due to the possibility that some boxes may contain small pieces of metal.

Kraft has received eight consumer contacts about this product from the impacted line within this range of code dates and no injuries have been reported. We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed.

The recalled product was shipped by Kraft to customers nationwide in the U.S. The product was also distributed to Puerto Rico and some Caribbean and South American countries -- but not to Canada.

Consumers who purchased this product should not eat it. They should return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers also can contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-816-9432 between 9 am and 6 pm (Eastern) for a full refund.

 :2-tysign: Thanks for the info, Elle Mae. :gfriends1:

BTW, Amazon has already checked out this post...

I was very appreciative of how thoroughly you wrote your post...
Showing how you came to know about the recall, you were an Amazon customer and
you gave FULL information to help people determine if they have any of the recalled
product on their shelves at home or in stores as they shop so they can avoid recalled
boxes if the store happened to have missed any of the product. AWESOME~!
Thank you so much. :claphands:

I just happened to wonder who else besides me was reading the post and found...
