Kraft recalls cottage cheese due to poor storage


Cottage Cheese Recall Issued By Kraft Foods After Manufacturing Mishap


NORTHFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Kraft Foods Group is recalling some of its cottage cheese products, company officials announced Saturday.

Some ingredients used 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 said.

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

The products, with a coded date between May 9 and July 23 stamped on them, were only shipped to stores in the United States. The codes can be found on the cup bottoms or on top of the packages.

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.

For more information about the recall, call Kraft at 1-800-396-6307 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EDT.

It's an AOL blog, there will be ALWAYS some gluesniffer that has to twist a board with nothing to do about politics into a political discussion. Pity them, they can't comprehend any other topic. Think of them as being one track minded and simpletons.

They listed which specific ones:

" Knudsen Cottage Cheese, Breakstone's Cottage Cheese, Simply Kraft Cottage Cheese and Daily Chef Cottage Cheese"

If you're truly not sure, call your local grocery. They would have a list of which ones have been recalled by now I'm sure. But I don't see low fat listed myself.

This is not a buy and keep item. Kraft Foods should have known better, but I do give
them credit for telling the truth and I bet we eat far worse each day ,like the lies from
the whitehouse we all have to swallow.

And the Whitehouse has nothing to do with a cottage cheese recall. Go find a politically themed board and post there instead.

Based on the dates it seems this should have been announced much sooner. If someone had the product dated May 9th they have probably already consumed the cottage cheese.

Where were the FDA "inspectors".?

This was a VOLUNTARY RECALL.. how did the "inspectors" MISS.. 1.2 MILLION CASES of cottage cheese.. in the WRONG storage area.?
Nice "work".. if you can get it. Government APPOINTEES at.. their "best".

They list "some ingredients" not the cheese itself. Could be the milk used got too warm for instance, or the rennet used to start the process to turn the milk into cheese curds. Could be a mild malfunction of equipment, let's say a gauge is reading one temprature but the actual one is a bit warmer. The article doesn't say. But it also DOESN'T say it was in the WRONG storage area. And again this is voluntary as you pointed out, the cheese probably looks fine and might even be safe other then it MAY spoil faster.

Or the short form, Kraft is being cautious, it's not like they shipped out 1.2 million cases of rotting cheese. :P

I purchased a large carton at Costco and received a phone call from Kraft telling me to return the carton to Costco. I was very pleasantly surprised by the call.

Tell you what. Go buy some cottage cheese. Make sure it's not one listed in the recall above. Leave it on your counter for..oh let's say a week. Then open the lid and see if you'd want to eat it. :P
