Monday Kraft Food Group issued a recall of 242,ooo cases of Original flavor Mac and Cheese dinner due to possible metal contamination.
The food manufacturer received eight complaints about the metal pieces in their food from consumers, but no injuries were reported.
The recall is limited to the 7.25-oz size of the Original flavor of boxed dinner that is marked with the “Best When Used By” dates listed from September 18, 2015 through October 11, 2015.
The affected products are also marked with the code “C2” below the dates, representing the production line where the product was processed.
The company has stated that the cases of affected Mac and Cheese were also sold in multi-packs.
There are four combinations of multi-packs the affected product might be in:
If you have purchased any of the above products, return the items to the store where they were purchased for a full refund or exchange. Alternatively, you can contact Kraft at 1-800-816-9432 for more questions.
In situations where you or a loved one has sustained injuries from a recalled product, you may have a product liability case.
When companies recall an item, they are still liable for any injuries a consumer sustains due to the mistakes made during production. The act of recalling a product makes it evident that there was a manufacturing error and that the company is responsible for the error.
Final settlements are largely decided on the severity of the injury caused by the defect. Simply finding metal in the product does not make a strong case, but if injuries occur due to the defect then you should consult a personal injury attorney.
