Kraft Heinz Foods on Nov. 15, 2019, recalled 9,500 cases of Breakstone’s cottage cheese, including 16-ounce containers of the 2% milkfat lowfat large curd variety.

Kraft Heinz Foods has recalled 9,500 cases of its Breakstone’s cottage cheese because the product might contain pieces of red plastic and metal.

The company said it issued the voluntary recall after a consumer reported finding a piece of red plastic in a container of the cottage cheese. According to the company, six such complaints were received as of Friday , but no resulting injuries or illness were reported.

The foreign material may have been introduced to the cottage cheese during the production process, Kraft Heinz said.

The recall applies to three varieties of Breakstone’s cottage cheese sold in plastic cups with a “best when used by” date of Dec. 10, 2019: 16-ounce 2% milkfat lowfat large curd; 24-ounce 4% milkfat large curd; 24-ounce 4% milkfat small curd.

The company cautions consumers not to eat the affected cottage cheese and advises them to return it to the place of purchase for a refund or replacement.

Questions may be directed to the company weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time at 1-866-572-3805.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
