Kraft Foods recalls 260 cases of Velveeta

NEW YORK (AP) _ Kraft is recalling Velveeta cheese from Walmart stores in as
many as 12 states, mostly in the Midwest, because the cheese lacks the proper
amount of preservatives.

Insufficient levels of sorbic acid has led to the recall of 260 cases of
Velveeta original pasteurized recipe cheese product because it could cause the
cheese to spoil prematurely or cause food-borne illnesses.

Kraft Foods Group Inc. says the cheese was sent to three Walmart distribution
centers and could have been shipped to as many as 12 states: Colorado, Illinois,
Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South
Dakota and Wisconsin.

The company says the code on the package is 021000611614.
