Breakstone's Cottage Cheese recalled for potential presence of metal pieces and plastic

CLEVELAND — Approximately 9,500 cases of Breakstone’s Cottage Cheese have been voluntarily recalled due to the potential presence of pieces of red plastic and metal that may have been introduced during production.

The consumption of hard or foreign objects could cause injury to teeth, mouth, throat, stomach or intestine tissues if swallowed.

All three varieties have a "best when used by" date of Dec. 10, 2019.

Consumers who purchased the cottage cheese should not eat it and return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-866-572-3805 Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern, for a full refund.

"We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed,” Breakstone said in a statement.

This product was sent to retailers and distributors in the U.S and exported to Latin America and was produced and distributed by Kraft Heinz Foods Company.
