The Ministry of Commerce, Business Development, Investment and Consumer Affairs would like to inform the public that Kraft Foods Group of Northfield, Illinois, USA has voluntarily recalled approximately 242,000 cases of select code dates and manufacturing codes of the Original flavour of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner, due to the possibility that some boxes may contain small pieces of metal. The recalled product is limited to the 7.25 oz. size of the Original flavour of boxed dinner with the “Best Used By” dates of September 18, 2015 through to October 11, 2015, with the code "C2" directly below the date on each individual box. The "C2" refers to a specific production line on which the affected product was made.
The Ministry has conducted supermarket surveillance throughout the island in order to verify the possible presence of this product on the supermarket shelves. The surveillance revealed that the item in question is not exposed for sale on supermarket shelves here. However, the Ministry is asking consumers to be vigilant while making purchases locally. The Ministry is also making a plea to consumers who may have imported Kraft Macaroni & Cheese into Saint Lucia to carefully examine the goods in their possession to ensure that they are not within the affected “C2” code.
If you have purchased the item at any of the local supermarkets, please return the sealed box bearing the recalled identification batch code to the point of purchase with your receipt for a full refund.
