First, news broke last week that employees working at the company's Illinois headquarters were having their free cheese-stick and Jell-O privileges revoked, and now the company has announced the recall of 36,000 cases of Kraft Singles American and White American cheese due to a choking hazard.
The problem comes from the packaging of the cheese: A piece of the thin plastic wrapper encasing the slices of cheese may end up sticking to the cheese and being accidentally ingested, potentially causing a choking hazard. Bad news for those of us who have a habit of working our way through an entire package, Homer Simpson-style.
