Lean Cuisine recalls frozen chicken meals

November 18, 2008 | 10:33 am

The Nestle Prepared Foods Co. is recalling three varieties of Lean Cuisine entrees. According to a recorded message: "Lean Cuisine is taking this action after several consumers recalled finding small pieces of blue plastic material." Presumably, in their food.

The Lean Cuisine meals in question are the Pesto Chicken with Bow Tie Pasta, the Chicken Mediterranean and the Chicken Tuscan. Consumers can find out whether their meals are affected by looking at the bar code or UPC label on the boxes and calling Lean Cuisine at (800) 993-8625. Then, Press 2, and then Press 1 for a recorded message. No other varieties of Lean Cuisine products are affected by this recall, according to the message.

Curiously, as of this moment, there isn't any information on the recall at www.leancuisine.com

Media calls were referred to a representative, and a message left there was not immediately returned.
