Recall: Lean Cuisine Mezzaluna Ravioli

WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Nestle Prepared Foods Co. recalled some Lean Cuisine Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli due to glass found in three entrees, U.S. officials said.

Officials at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Nestle is voluntarily recalling Lean Cuisine, Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli, UPC 13800-58358 with production codes 2311587812 and 2312587812 and a "best before date" of DEC 2013

The recall was limited to these two days of production, which were distributed nationwide. No other production dates, sizes or varieties of Lean Cuisine products are affected by this recall, officials said.

Nestle said it was taking the action after three consumers said they found small fragments of glass in the ravioli portion of the entree. No injuries were reported by the consumers.

Due to its popularity, Nestle said very little remains in retail distribution and is asking consumers to examine their freezer inventory for specific packages of this product.

Consumers who might have purchased the recalled item should not consume the product, but contact Nestle Consumer Services at 1-866-586-9424 or leancuisine@casupport.com for further instructions -- Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., ET.

Nestle said it would provide a replacement coupon to consumers and also might make arrangements to retrieve the product for further examination.
