Kraft Foods Cited Again for Short-Weight Products

Posted Wednesday, January 30, 2013 --- 12:27 p.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- State inspectors have again accused Kraft Foods Group of selling short-weight products in Wisconsin stores.

Regulators say nine packages of Kraft's Oscar Mayer ham falsely represented the quantity stamped on the label. Short-weight packages were found in Beloit, Dodgeville, Plover, Racine, Watertown, Waukesha and Wisconsin Rapids.

It's the Northfield, Ill., company's third alleged violation of Wisconsin's weights and measures statutes in the past two years. Kraft Foods does not admit any wrongdoing, but agree to pay the nearly $14,000 civil forfeiture.

Oscar Mayer agreed to integrate weight scales at the assembly point in all production lines at an estimated cost of $10 million.
