Kraft Velveeta Shells and Cheese recalled due to wire bristles inside. Via Google Images.
Kraft Foods Inc. has issued a recall for several types of its Velveeta Shells & Cheese single-serve microwaveable cups. Apparently, small, thin pieces of wire bristle may be in the cups.
137,000 Cases of the products affected by the recall were shipped to customers across the U.S. (but not Canada). Kraft, the country’s largest food maker (which hopes to split into two companies before the end of next year), reported on Friday that there have been no consumer injuries or complaints reported so far.
