LEAN CUISINE® Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli

(MONTGOMERY) – Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries Consumer Food Safety inspectors are now conducting “effectiveness checks” in retail grocery stores and wholesale food warehouses after a recall on LEAN CUISINE® Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli.

Nestlé recently announced a voluntary recall of LEAN CUISINE® Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli, with a UPC of 13800-58358. The production codes are 2311587812 and 2312587812; the “best before date” appears as DEC 2013.

The voluntary recall – due to the possibility of glass fragments contained in the meals – is limited to the above production codes, which were distributed nationwide. No other varieties of LEAN CUISINE products are affected. Nestlé said it took action after three consumers reported small fragments of glass in the ravioli portion of the entrée.

The entrée being recalled was produced during early November, 2012. According to the Alabama Department of Agriculture, to locate the production code, “Consumers should look for the gray ‘proof of purchase’ panel, located on the right end flap of the package, below the ingredient statement.”

Consumers who may have purchased the recalled LEAN CUISINE item should contact Nestlé Consumer Services at (866) 586-9424 or for further instructions.
