RECALL: Check your Lean Cuisine for glass fragmentsPosted: Updated:
Nestlé Prepared Foods Company has announced a voluntary recall of LEAN CUISINE Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli.
The voluntary recall is limited to two days of production, with UPC 13800-58358 and production codes 2311587812 and 2312587812. The "best before date" appears as DEC 2013.
The product was distributed nationwide.
No other production dates, sizes, or varieties are affected by this voluntary recall.
According to a press release, the company issued the recall because the meals may contain fragments of glass. Nestlé says three consumers reported finding glass in the ravioli portion of the entrée.
No injuries were reported.
The entrée being recalled was produced during early November, 2012. Due to its popularity, Nestlé believes very little remains in retail distribution. For this reason, Nestlé is reaching out to consumers to ask that they examine their freezer inventory for specific packages of LEAN CUISINE®, Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli, with the codes listed above. To locate the production code, look for the gray "proof of purchase" panel, located on the right end flap of the package, below the ingredient statement.
In a press release, Nestlé said the company "is dedicated to food quality, and the health and safety of its consumers. For these reasons, the company initiated this recall. We apologize to our retail customers and consumers and sincerely regret any inconvenience created by this voluntary product recall."
If you have one of the packages, do not eat it. Contact Nestlé Consumer Services at (866) 586-9424 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further instructions. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., ET and this Saturday, February 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nestlé will provide a replacement coupon to reporting consumers and also may make arrangements to retrieve the product for further examination.
