The Kraft Heinz Company is voluntarily recalling 36,000 cases of select code dates of Kraft Singles individually-wrapped slices after customers reported choking on the plastic wrapping.
Three consumers choked and ten complaints were filed after some sections of the plastic remained connected to the cheese after it was unwrapped.
“If the film sticks to the slice and is not removed, it could potentially cause a choking hazard,” according the company’s statement.
The recall applies to 3-and 4-pound sizes of Kraft Singles American and White American pasteurized prepared cheese with a use-by-date of December 29, 2015 to January 4, 2016. The products were distributed throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and Grand Cayman.
