You might want to leave Kraft's Original Flavor Mac 'n' Cheese off your shopping list, at least for a while. The food-manufacturing conglomerate is voluntarily recalling over 242,000 cases of the product, according to a press release issued today. And, it only gets worse from there. The mass withdrawals are the result of the discovery that some boxes may contain small metal bits. The boxes in question are labeled with expiration dates between September and October 2015. The statement advises customers who have already purchased mac 'n' cheese from the affected batches to refrain from consuming the product, and to return to the point of purchase for a reimbursement or exchange. This is not the first time Kraft has found itself in hot water over controversial substances found in its products. In June 2013, food blogger Vani Hari made headlines when she publicly called out the brand for using yellow dye and G.M.O. wheat. Her petition garnered over 365,000 signatures, and by November of that year, the corporation announced the removal of two types of artificial colorings from its specialty-shaped macaroni, though this change did not apply to the elbow-shaped variety that was recalled today.
