lean cuisine recall Lean Cuisine recall over glass shards found in mushroom ravioli

Some Lean Cuisine customers got more than they bargained for when they picked up a package of the frozen food line’s mushroom ravioli. Nestle has recalled more than 500,000 of the Lean Cuisine dishes because glass shards were found in them. Fortunately no people have been injured thus far.

“The entree being recalled was produced during early November, 2012. Due to its popularity, Nestle believes very little remains in retail distribution. For this reason, Nestle is reaching out to consumers to ask that they examine their freezer inventory for specific packages of LEAN CUISINE, Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli, UPC 13800-58358 with production codes 2311587812 and 2312587812 and a ‘best before date’ which appears as DEC 2013,” Nestle says in a press release.

Basically, if you have the Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli dish in your freezer, you probably should check to see if it’s a part of this recall. There are no other Nestle products involved, the company says, and those who do find the recalled Lean Cuisine should contact Nestle Customer Services.

“Nestle is dedicated to food quality, and the health and safety of its consumers. For these reasons, the company initiated this recall,” the company states. “We apologize to our retail customers and consumers and sincerely regret any inconvenience created by this voluntary product recall.”
