Kraft Foods Group Inc. said on Friday it is recalling nearly 8,000 cases of Kraft American Singles, according to news reports.

The company recall happened after a supplier “did not store an ingredient used in this product in accordance with Kraft’s temperature standards,” a Kraft Foods press release said.

The recall is linked to products with “Best When Used By” dates of Feb. 20, 2015 and Feb. 21, 2015, Reuters reports.

The company told Reuters that while food-borne illness and premature spoilage are unlikely, people should not consume the product and return the product to the store for an exchange or refund.

The Kraft American Singles were produced at a Kraft plant in Springfield, Mo.
