More than a million cases of different kinds of cottage cheeses have been recalled by Kraft Foods Group over concerns that some ingredients used the  products were not properly refrigerated. 

The affected brands are Knudsen Cottage Cheese, Breakstone's Cottage Cheese, Simply Kraft Cottage Cheese and Daily Chef Cottage Cheese.

The ingredients were not stored in accordance with proper temperature standards at a Tulare, California, manufacturing facility, company officials said, and the failure to properly store ingredients might have created conditions that could lead to premature spoilage and food-borne illness.

The Northfield, Illinois, company voluntarily recalled 1.2 million cases of the cottage cheese as a precaution, company officials announced Saturday.

The products, with a coded date between May 9 and July 23 stamped on them, were only shipped to stores in the United States. The codes can be found on the cup bottoms or on top of the packages, according to The Associated Press.

Anyone who purchased these products should not eat them. They can be returned to the stores where they were bought for exchanges or full refunds.

In April, Kraft issued an Oscar Mayer recall for 96,000 pounds of hot dogs after a customer found Cheese Dogs in the packaging for the company's Classic Wieners.

The Oscar Mayer Classic Cheese Dogs are reportedly made with milk, a known allergen that is not printed on the ingredient list on the Classic Wieners' label, Reuters reported.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service categorized the recall as a Class I, which means it's "a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences, or death."
