Wednesday, September 9, 2015. BMG: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced a recall of specific individually-wrapped American Cheese slices produced by the Kraft Heinz Foods Company of the U.S.
A statement from the Belize Agricultural Health Authority (BAHA), the Ministry of Health and the Belize Bureau of Standards advises the general public that the voluntary recall on select code dates and manufacturing codes of individually-wrapped American Cheese slices is due to the possibility that a thin strip of the individual packaging film may remain adhered to the slice after the wrapper has been removed. If the film sticks to the slice and is not removed, it could potentially cause a choking hazard.
The products being affected by the recall are listed below and particular to Manufacturing Code “S54” or “S55”.
Consumers are advised not to purchase these items from any retail establishment selling the aforementioned recall products. Those that have purchased any of these products should not consume them. Additionally consumers can report any retail establishments that continue to market these products to the general public.
Retail establishments have the obligation to prevent these items from entering the public food chain by removing them from their shelves and to advising BAHA, the Ministry or the Bureau.
