Truitt Brothers Inc. is recalling approximately 1.77 million pounds of Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Skillets products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA)Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.
The recalled products are formulated with hydrolyzed soy protein and dried soy sauce, known allergens, which are not declared on some labels.
The products affected by this recall include: 3.3-pound cases containing six, 9-ounce microwaveable containers of "Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Skillets SINGLES – ULTIMATE CHEESEBURGER MAC" with a Used By/Sell By date code of "02 MARCH 2014 – 23 OCT 2014.,"a UPC code of 2100004329, and one of the following case codes: 00210000432900, 00210000432910, 00210000432925, 00210000464000 or 00210000465100.
The affected products were produced between May 6, 2013 and January 16, 2014, and shipped to Kraft Foods distribution centers and retail locations nationwide. No other Velveeta or Kraft products are impacted by this recall.
The problem was discovered during a recent routine quality check conducted by the company, which then contacted FSIS. The company believes the problem occurred when a label supplier inadvertently mixed labels with incorrect ingredient lines with labels containing correct ingredient information.
