Glass Scare Prompts Lean Cuisine Recall
Three consumers reported finding glass in their ravioli.
Lean Cuisine, made by Nestlé Prepared Foods Company, has issued a voluntary recall for some of its packages of ravioli because the meal may contain fragments of glass, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The recall pertains to packages of Lean Cuisine Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli, with a UPC 13800-58358.
The production codes are 2311587812 and 2312587812 and the “best before date” is December 2013.
Nestlé is taking this action after three consumers reported they had found small fragments of glass in the ravioli portion of the entrée. No injuries were reported by any of the consumers, the news release stated.
The recalled item was produced during early November 2012. Nestlé believes because very little remains in retail distribution, some of the packages may still be in the freezers of its customers.
Consumers who may have purchased the recalled item should not consume the product, but instead contact Nestlé Consumer Services at (866) 586-9424 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further instructions.
