Drop the cheese! Kraft has voluntarily recalled 36,000 cases of some American individually wrapped cheese singles. So far, there have been 10 consumer complaints, three of which included people choking on the plastic film, which might remain stuck onto the cheese after it's unwrapped.
"We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed," the company said in the statement.
