Lean Cuisine frozen spaghetti dinners with meatballs are not supposed to include pieces of hard plastic, but that’s what consumers in Minnesota and Wisconsin found.


No one has been injured from biting into the objects. 

Gaffney, SC-based Nestlé Prepared Foods Co. Monday recalled approximately 10,260 pounds of the frozen spaghetti and meatball entrees because of the complaints about the foreign objects. 

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) the product recall involves:

9.5-oz. packages of “Lean Cuisine Simple Favorites, Spaghetti with Meatballs.”

The packages bear the establishment number “P-7991” and the case code “0298595519P” and a best before date of November, 2011 printed on the side of the package, underneath the ingredient listing. 

The spaghetti and meatball products were packaged on Oct. 25, 2010, and shipped to distributors and retail stores east of the Rocky Mountains.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
