Kraft Foods Group Inc. said Monday it is voluntarily recalling a variety of string cheese after discovering that “a thin layer of plastic film” from the packaging could stick to the cheese and pose a choking hazard.

The cheese in question is the Jalapeño variety of Kraft String Cheese with a Best When Used By date of Nov. 23, 2012. This product is sold in a 12-ounce bag with 12 individual snacks. Kraft said it has received one consumer complaint and about 2,700 cases of the string cheese was distributed in the U.S. The product is made in Campbell, N.Y.

No other dates of the jalapeño cheese are part of the recall, the company said. Consumers can check the Best When Used By date by looking at in the lower-right corner of the package. Affected products can be returned to the store where they were purchased for an exchange or refund. Consumers can also call Kraft Food Consumer Relations at 1-800-396-2133 if they have questions.
