Nestlé USA is recalling a limited amount of its Lean Cuisine Fettuccini Alfredo products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen. The products contain soy, a known allergen, as well as chicken, which are not declared on the product label. The product should not be consumed because people who are allergic to soy could have an allergic reaction.
The following product is subject to recall:
- 9 ¼ oz. boxes, containing plastic trays, labeled, “Lean Cuisine Favorites Fettuccini Alfredo” with a packaging date of April 22, 2020, “best before” date of May 2021 and batch code 0113587812. The “best before” date of May 2021 and batch code appear on the side of the package.
Due to a packaging error, some packages of Lean Cuisine Fettuccini Alfredo incorrectly contain Lean Cuisine Chicken Fettuccini. The ingredient statement on the impacted product applies to Lean Cuisine Fettuccini Alfredo and does not identify soy or chicken, which are in the Lean Cuisine Chicken Fettuccini. The product subject to recall does not bear the USDA mark of inspection because pasta products are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
A limited quantity of the product with mismatched packaging was distributed to retailers in the U.S., only. The product being recalled was produced on April 22, 2020. No other production dates of Lean Cuisine Fettuccini Alfredo and no other Lean Cuisine products are impacted by this recall.
The problem was discovered after Nestlé USA was contacted by consumers, and we are working closely with USDA’s Food safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on this recall.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an injury, illness or allergic reaction should contact a healthcare provider. Consumers who are allergic to soy or do not eat chicken are urged not to consume the product. This product should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
The quality, safety and integrity of Nestlé USA and Lean Cuisine products remain our number one priority. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this action represents to both our consumers and retail customers.
