A piece of the thin plastic wrapper surrounding the Singles has the chance of sticking to the cheese, which could cause someone to choke, according to a statement from the Kraft Heinz company. Some 377,000 packages of affected Singles have been shipped to the U.S., Puerto Rico and Grand Cayman, the statement said.

Ten customers have reported the plastic wrapper sticking to a cheese slice, and three of those have reported choking, according to the company.

"We deeply regret this situation and apologize to any consumers we have disappointed," said the Heinz-Kraft recall statement.
