MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries Food Safety says its inspectors are conducting effectiveness checks after two companies launched voluntary recalls on popular food products.
The first voluntary recall is for three varieties of Velveeta Shells & Cheese Single Serve Microwaveable Cups with limited "best when used by" dates as a precaution due to the possible presence of small, thin wire bristle pieces.
The second voluntary recall was issued by Flowers Foods for Mrs. Freshley's multipack cereal bars, labeled in English/French, because they may contain undeclared non-fat dry milk. People who have allergies to dairy products run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. No illnesses have been reported to date.
No other Kraft Foods products are being recalled. There have been no reports of consumer injuries or complaints. Kraft Foods is issuing this voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution. Consumers who purchased affected "best when used by" dates of these products should not eat them. They should return them to the store of purchase for an exchange or full refund. Consumers also can contact Kraft Foods Consumer Relations Monday through Friday at 1-800-308-1841.
