FRIDAY, June 20, 2014 (HealthDay) -- Velveeta cheese products are being recalled from Walmart stores in as many as a dozen states because they don't have an adequate amount of preservatives, Kraft Foods Group Inc. says.

The company said insufficient levels of sorbic acid in the 260 recalled cases of Velveeta original pasteurized recipe cheese product could cause it to spoil prematurely or trigger food-borne illnesses in people who eat it, the Associated Press reported.

The recalled cases were shipped to three Walmart distribution centers in as many as 12 states: Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

The recalled packages have the code 021000611614, a date stamp that reads "17 DEC 2014" and a timeframe of between 10:54 and 14:35, the AP reported.
