Not only other problems, but I have had Velveeta in the box when you remove the sliver wrapper the clear plastic inner liner stays on the cheese in pieces and is very hard to see. Both of us in our house hold has choked on this paper.
We are now staying away from this product till corrected. I hope children don't die from this problem. Lets get it fixed.

The CEO of Kraft better call Shop RIte in Woodbridge NJ an oppologize because Woodbridge is full of attorneys an anyone of 100,000 Township residents may have eaten the plastic today like I had! Oh an I think it is in several cases or packages so you better act quick.

The 12 oz processed cheese slices have plastic from the wrapper embedded in the slices. I returned 2 packages to the Woodbridge NJ Shop Rite today 10/09/11 after showing the store manager the defective Kraft product. I have to have a X- Ray by coincidence done on Thursday for a possible tumor so I am sure any plastic I ate today will show up !

So if I've already eaten this, what exactly is it that they'd like me to send back?

When the U.S. economy is busted, then the immigrants will go home because there will no longer be a free ride.
I can't wait because there will be a vast waste land to plunder....

How bad does it have to be before they start leaving? I just see more and more coming over the AZ border every day to shake hands with the Obama supporter and state department representative who immediately gets them a voter registration card and drivers license in any state they want to go along with their newly minted, birth certificate and SS card printed with tax payer dollars no doubt. They are reminded not to break any other laws while they are here so they can never ever be deported by this administration that chooses which laws it wants to uphold and not the ones they swore to uphold.

This has got to stop!! We continue to have illegal immigration but continue to send our monitary provisions to other countries. The U.S. has a big epiphany coming. So all of you rich people need to worry about what your money is really worth. It may oly be numbers on a file somewhere that has no real value when we all become the same.
