No other Kraft or Polly-O String Cheese or String Cheese Twists products are being recalled, nor any other Kraft Foods or Polly-O products.

Kraft is conducting this recall after receiving several reports from consumers of premature spoilage of some of the string cheese products listed above. Kraft stopped the production and distribution of the affected products from the specific facility in Campbell, New York as the company continues its investigation.

Consumers who purchased any product listed above should not eat it. Officials say they 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 am and 6 pm (Eastern).
