Nestlé USA Announces Voluntary Recall of a Limited Number of Lean Cuisine® Products Due to the Potential Presence of Foreign Material

Glendale, California – March 10, 2016

Nestlé USA is initiating a voluntary recall of a limited number of Lean Cuisine® products due to the potential presence of glass pieces. This voluntary recall covers only specific production codes of the following products:

  • Lean Cuisine Spinach and Mushroom Pizza
  • Lean Cuisine Spinach Artichoke Ravioli
  • Lean Cuisine Ricotta and Spinach Ravioli
  • Lean Cuisine Spinach, Artichoke & Chicken Panini
  • Lean Cuisine Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli

The voluntary recall is limited to the production codes listed below. To locate the production code, consumers should look on the side panel of the package. No other production codes, sizes or varieties of Lean Cuisine products are affected by this recall.

No injuries have been reported. We are recalling these products because they may contain small pieces of glass that may cause injury. Although our investigation is ongoing, we believe the source of the glass is spinach that was an ingredient common to the products subject to this recall. Nestlé USA is taking this action out of an abundance of caution after several consumers reported that they had found small pieces of glass in some of these products.

Consumers who may have purchased the products listed above should not consume them but should instead contact Nestlé Consumer Services at 1-800-681-1676.

The quality and safety of our products are the top priority for our company. We apologize to our retail customers and consumers and sincerely regret any inconvenience created by this recall. We are working with both the U. S. Food & Drug Administration and the U. S. Department of Agriculture on this voluntary recall and will cooperate with them fully.
