With Super Bowl Two Weeks Away, Velveeta Recall Announced

A food maker is recalling some Kraft Velveeta pasta and ground beef products, because some labels left off soy, an allergen, as an ingredient.

The recall covers more than 1.75 million lbs. of Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac. They contain hydrolyzed soy protein and dried soy sauce. Those ingredients were not listed on some labels.

The products — made by Truitt Bros., Inc. of East Bernstadt, Kentucky — have expiration dates of March 2 through October 23. They were sent to Kraft Foods distribution centers and retailers worldwide between May 2013 and January.

No other Velveeta or Kraft products are affected. No illness has been reported. Consumers with questions can call the Kraft Foods Consumer Relations Center at 1 (800) 396-5512.
