MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Kraft Foods is recalling Velveeta cheese from Walmart stores in up to 12 states, including Wisconsin.
The company said the product did not have the proper amount of a sorbic acid preservative -- and it could cause the cheese to prematurely spoil, and cause foodborne illnesses.
Kraft said the affected Velveeta packages were shipped to 3 Walmart distribution centers -- and it apparently ended up in stores in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, and seven others from Colorado to Ohio.
The packages have a date stamp of December 17th of this year. They also have a code with the last three numbers being "614."
