Kraft Recalled Some Velveeta Because It Wasn’t Fake Enough

Kraft is recalling 260 cases of the 32-ounce-size loaves of its pasteurized prepared cheese product from Walmarts in as many as 12 states because somebody omitted a crucial artificial preservative during the manufacturing process. No, really. Scientifically speaking, the batch did not contain “appropriate” levels of sorbic acid, but when you’re dealing with a survivalist favorite that some college kids buy as freshmen and eat as sixth-year seniors, the threat of spoilage seems, to quote Kraft’s own recall, “unlikely.” Grub chooses to get its risk of food-borne illness via wood-aged cheese, anyhow.
