Allergy Alert: Lean Cuisine Recall for Mislabeling

Nestlé Prepared Foods Company is recalling a small number — less than 200 packages — of Lean Cuisine Dinnertime Selects Chicken Fettuccini because they might contain Lean Cuisine Dinnertime Selects Lemon Garlic Shrimp. The mixed up packages were possibly shipped to grocers in Alaska, Florida, Idaho, Oregon and Washington state.

Four consumers who purchased the mislabeled product alerted Nestlé to the issue. No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported.

The recalled packages have the UPC code 13800-14880, a production code of 1253595911G and a “best before” date of October 2012.  The production code is located in the gray box on the right flap of the package.

No other Lean Cuisine products are involved in this recall.

Because the mislabeled product contains shrimp, an allergen, Nestlé is advising consumers who are allergic to shellfish and who have purchased the recalled product not to consume it to avoid the possibility  of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.

A full refund is available by calling Nestlé Consumer Services (8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday) at 1-800-542-6935.
