Kraft is recalling 1.2 million cases of cottage cheese that could spoil prematurely and cause illness.

The recall, announced Saturday, includes the Knudsen, Breakstone, Simply Kraft and Daily Chef brands.

Ingredients used in nearly three-dozen cottage cheese products weren't properly stored in a California facility, Kraft Foods Group said.

Since the discovery, officials halted production of those products at that plant and began working to fix the issue, Kraft said.

Kraft called the recall precautionary. Spokesman Russ Dyer said the company was investigating one complaint of illness stemming from a batch of cheese that was not recalled and is now expired.

    That is Bull about only 1 person being all. Someone I work with said he got food poisoning on Thursday after eating Breakstone's cottage cheese. I can arrange for you to speak with him, if you wish.
    We live in Harrisburg, PA, where it was purchased at a Giant Supermarket.
    I personally would never eat Breakstone's cottage cheese. There used to be PennMaid cottage cheese on the shelves which was soooo much better. But because of the Monopoly power of Kraft, that got the competition removed from the shelves.

      When I was a kid I once ran over an unopened 1/2 pint of milk with my bike. The little carton had been sitting in the summer sun for days near a dumpster and the label was bleached and faded. I was expecting it to merely pop when my tires squashed it. What I didn't expect was the 1/2 pint of foul smelling cottage cheese that squirted out.

    Isn't cottage cheese already spoiled milk?
