If you were planning on doing your Velveeta shopping today, just a friendly heads up: Kraft Foods has recalled a batch that was shipped to Walmart stores around the Midwest, the Chicago Tribune reports.
The company said this particular batch of the pseudo cheese didn't contain enough of the preservative known as sorbic acid, meaning it can spoil prematurely and possibly lead to food borne illness. The product was shipped to three Walmart distribution centers and could have been shipped to as many as 12 states: Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
The code on the package should read 021000611614, Kraft told the Associated Press. The containers will have a "Best Used By" date of Dec. 17, 2014.
Who knew sorbic acid was so crucial?
