NORTHFIELD, Ill., — Kraft is voluntarily recalling approximately 242,000 cases of the Original flavor of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinners due to the possibility that some boxes may contain small pieces of metal.

The recall only impacts select code dates and manufacturing codes. The recalled product is limited to the 7.25-oz. size of the original flavor of boxed dinner with the “Best When Used By” dates of September 18, 2015 through October 11, 2015, and the code “C2” directly below the date on each box.

Some of the products were sold in multi-pack units that have a range of different code dates and manufacturing codes on the external packaging (box or shrink-wrap), depending on the package configuration, the company said in a news release.

The affected dates of this product were sold in these four configurations:

 

    • 7.25 oz. box, Original flavor

 

    • 3-pack box of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor

 

    • 4-pack  shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor

 

    • 5-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor

 
The product was shipped to customers in the U.S. and several other countries, excluding Canada.

No other sizes, varieties or pasta shapes and no other packaging configurations are included in this recall, the company said. No products with manufacturing codes other than “C2” below the code date on the individual box are included in this recall.

Consumers who purchased this product should return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers also can contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-816-9432 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET for a full refund.
