Kraft recalls cottage cheese due to poor storage

MGN Online

NORTHFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Kraft Foods Group is recalling some of its cottage cheese products.

Company officials say some ingredients in Knudsen Cottage Cheese, Breakstone’s Cottage Cheese, Simply Kraft Cottage Cheese and Daily Chef Cottage Cheese were not stored in accordance with proper temperature standards at a Tulare, California, manufacturing facility.

They say the failure to properly store ingredients might have created conditions that could lead to premature spoilage and food-borne illness. The Northfield, Illinois, company voluntarily recalled 1.2 million cases of the cottage cheese as a precaution.

The products have a coded date between May 9 and July 23 stamped on them.

Anyone who purchased these products should not eat them. They can be returned to the stores where they were bought for exchanges or full refunds.
