Beyond "Krafty"

Henry Miller never liked the Kraft company. He felt that they had not right to call what they were selling cheese, since their product was not even remotely related to any of the cheese he was eating when living in France. I think it was in The Air-Conditioned Nightmare that he referred to them as the "Krafty cheese company." Therefore, I am close to positive that he would never, in his wildest dreams, think of making a cheese sauce out of that powered stuff in a box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Still I doubt that even his darkest thoughts harbored the notion that one of those boxes would contain metallic fragments. However, some of them apparently did; and, according to a BBC News report, Kraft is now in the process of recalling some 6.5 million of them. My wife decided to start making cheese sauces from scratch some time ago. On the other hand, she is not above starting with a packet of pre-shredded cheese; and who knows what those shredding machines might do?
