NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) - There is a major recall involving nearly 250,000 cases of a popular macaroni and cheese product.

Kraft Foods Group is voluntarily recalling some Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner products, because some boxes may contain small pieces of metal.

The approximately 242,000 cases of the Original flavor diners have select code dates and manufacturing codes.

The recall is limited to the 7.25-oz. size of the Original flavor of boxed dinner with the "Best When Used By" dates of September 18, 2015 through October 11, 2015. There will also be the code "C2" directly below the date on each individual box.  The "C2" refers to the specific production line that produced the affected product.

Some of the recalled dinners were also packaged in multi-pack units, with a range of different code dates and manufacturing codes on the external packaging.

The affected dates of this product were sold in only these four configurations:

  • 7.25 oz. box, Original flavor
  • 3-pack box of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor
  • 4-pack  shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor
  • 5-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor

While Kraft has received eight "consumer contacts" about the products, so far no injuries have been reported.

The company is advising that anyone with the affected product return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund.

Shoppers can also call Kraft Foods Consumer Relations at 1-800-816-9432 between 9 am and 6 pm EST to ask questions or receive a full refund.
