Velveeta cheese at Walmart stores in as many as 12 states is being recalled by Kraft because the product lacks the proper amount of preservatives.
Insufficient levels of sorbic acid has led to the recall of 260 cases of Velveeta original pasteurized recipe cheese product because it could cause the cheese product to spoil prematurely or cause food-borne illnesses, according to The Associated Press.
Kraft Foods Group Inc. said the cheese product was sent to three Walmart distribution centers and could have been shipped to as many as 12 states: Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

In May, more than a million cases of different kinds of cottage cheeses were recalled by Kraft
over concerns that some ingredients used the products were not properly refrigerated.
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.
