36,000 Cases Of Kraft Cheese Recalled Due To Choking Hazard

You might want to check your cheese.

American mainstay, Kraft Heinz, has voluntarily recalled 36,000 cases of individually-wrapped cheese slices due to a possible choking hazard involving the wrapper.

Kraft said in a press release, "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."

So far, at least three consumers have reported choking on the wrapper in question.

The recall affects three-and-four pound packages of American and White American Kraft Singles with a "Best When Used By Date of 29 DEC 15 through 04 JAN 16," and the "Manufacturing Code S54 or S55," according to the press release.
