Kraft Foods is recalling about 6.5 million boxes cases of original flavor Kraft Macaroni & Cheese because some of the boxes contain small pieces of metal. The boxes have "best when used by" dates ranging from Sept. 18, 2015, through Oct. 11, 2015, and are marked with the code "C2." They were sold throughout the US, Puerto Rico, and in some countries in the Caribbean and South America.

The recall covers 7.25-ounce boxes that were sold individually and in packs of three, four, and five. It covers 242,000 cases of the product. Kraft said it is aware of eight incidents of consumers finding metal in the boxes, but hasn't been informed of any injuries. It says consumers should return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund. (More Kraft stories.)
