INDIANAPOLIS, Ind (June 19, 2014)– The Chicago Tribune reports that Kraft is recalling a batch of Velveeta cheese shipped to Walmart stores because it doesn’t contain enough of a specific preservative and can spoil too fast, potentially causing a food borne illness.

The affected products may have been shipped to Walmart stores in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.  These products were not shipped outside of the U.S.

The recalled product is in 32-ounce containers. They will have a “Best Used By” date of Dec. 17, 2014 and time stamp between 09:34 and 13:15 next to the date.

Consumers who have bought the product should return them to the store for a full refund, or call Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at (800) 310-3704 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central time.
