NORTHFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Kraft Foods Group is recalling some of its cottage cheese products.

Company officials say some ingredients used in Knudsen Cottage Cheese, Breakstone's Cottage Cheese, Simply Kraft Cottage Cheese and Daily Chef Cottage Cheese were not stored in accordance with proper temperature standards at a California, manufacturing facility. Kraft says that might have created conditions that could lead to premature spoilage and food-borne illness.

Kraft voluntarily recalled 1.2 million cases of the cottage cheese as a precaution.  The products have a date between May 9 and July 23 stamped on them.
 
Anyone who purchased these products should not eat them. They can be returned to the stores where they were bought for exchanges or full refunds.
 
For more information about the recall, call Kraft at 1-800-396-6307 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EDT.
