If you have any boxes of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, read them before you eat.

Kraft Food Group has voluntarily recalled about 242,000 cases of the product “due to the possibility that some boxes may contain small pieces of metal,” according to a press release. “We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed.”

The recall affects about 6.5 million boxes, The Associated Press reports.

While no injuries have been reported, Kraft said consumers should return boxes from the affected product line for a full refund.

The recall affects boxes that meet the following description:

  • 7.25-ounce size
  • “Original” flavor
  • Shipped across the U.S., including Puerto Rico, and to some Caribbean and South American countries
  • Sold in four configurations — single box, three-pack, shrink-wrapped four-pack, shrink-wrapped five-pack
  • Have “Best When Used By” dates of Sept. 18, 2015, through Oct. 11, 2015
  • Have the production line code “C2” directly below the date on each individual box

A Kraft press release offers more details about the affected boxes.
