Lean Cuisine Recalls Chicken Dinners

Yesterday Lean Cuisine's parent company, Nestlé Prepared Foods, recalled approximately 879,565 pounds of frozen chicken meals.

According to the US Department of Agriculture and Food Safety, the meals may contain foreign materials like small pieces of plastic.

To find out what exactly is being recalled,

.

  • 9.5-ounce packages of “Lean Cuisine Pesto Chicken with Bow Tie Pasta" brand frozen meals.
    Printed on each side of each package is a production code of “8280595912,” as well as a use-by date of “Best Before MAY 2010.”
  • 10.5-ounce packages of “Lean Cuisine Chicken Mediterranean” brand frozen meals.
    Printed on the side of each package is a production code of “8231595912” or “8241595912,” as well as a use-by date of “Best before SEP 2010”; a production code of “8263595912,” “8269595911” or “8274595912,” as well as a use-by date of “Best before OCT 2010”; or, a production code of “8291595912” or “8301595912,” as well as a use-by date of “Best before NOV 2010.”
  • 12.5-ounce packages of “Lean Cuisine Chicken Tuscan” brand frozen meals.
    Printed on the side of each package is a production code of “8234595911” and a use-by date of “Best before SEP 2009”; a production code of “8253595911” or “8269595912” as well as a use-by date of “Best before OCT 2009”; or, a production code of “8292595911” or “8296595911” as well as a use-by date of “Best before NOV 2009.”

Last Summer, Pizza Pockets, another brand under Nestlé, recalled a large number of frozen pepperoni Hot Pockets. I can't help but think plastic in frozen foods is an alarming trend. Let's hope the manufacturers get this problem sorted out soon. Until then, be sure to check the Lean Cuisines in your freezer.

I definitely ate a LC Chicken Mediterranean one day last week. I hope it wasn't one of the bad ones. I didn't get sick, but now i am super freaked out about this.

what's going on with quality control if this keeps happening? it makes you wonder about what's going on in these plants - and how there's no checks and balances that's going through everything.
