Note: Make sure if you feed your pup anything that hoomans eat to check with a Vet and make sure it is safe for them as well!

The Kraft Heinz company recently issued a recall across a wide variety of their products due to choking hazards.


According to their press release on the FDA website, the company is recalling select code dates and manufacturing codes of their single wrapped cheese slices. In these products, the packaging adheres to the slice, making it difficult to remove.

As they state:

“The recall applies to 3-lb. and 4-lb. sizes of Kraft Singles American and White American pasteurized prepared cheese product with a Best When Used By Date of 29 DEC 15 through 04 JAN 16, followed by the Manufacturing Code S54 or S55. The S54 and S55 codes refer to the two production lines on which the impacted product was made. The Best When Used By Date and Manufacturing Code are stamped on both the larger 3-lb. and 4-lb. boxes and the enclosed individual 1-lb. packages.”

Around 36,000 cases of the cheese slices were shipped out by the Kraft Heinz company to retailers in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Grand Cayman.

Here is the full list of the products involved:


They further added in their press release:

“We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed. Consumers who purchased this product should not eat it. They should return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers in the U.S. and Puerto Rico can also contact Kraft Heinz Consumer Relations for a full refund, at 1-800-432-3101, Monday through Friday, 9am to 6pm Eastern.”

So make sure if you want to give your pup a treat involving cheese, not to use these! Also, if you eat cheese, maybe avoid Kraft singles for a little! Also always make sure your pup isn’t lactose intolerant before giving them any dairy product!
