Check your pantry for Velveeta cheese. If you purchased Velveeta cheese at Walmart, check the code number on the packaging. If the code number is 021000611614, you need to throw it away or return it to Walmart for a refund.
Kraft is recalling Velveeta cheese in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin, 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.
