Lean Cuisine recalls frozen chicken meals

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.

I already ate the Lean Cuisine Chicken Mediterranean.

If I consumed some of the blue plastic, what symptoms should I be looking for?

Nothing beats home cooked meals. At least you know what you're putting in your mouth without unnecessary industrial chemicals. It's healthier, more cost effective, and hones your culinary skills. People really have to start taking better control of their own health/ lives...

Chad, too funny! You're right though, why worry about a little piece of plastic!!!

Has anyone looked at the crap they pack into these "meals"? Little pieces of blue plastic are the least of your worries if you find yourself eating a Lean Cuisine, a misnomer on both counts, by the way. On the plus side, the blue plastic might act as roughage pulling the chemical laden sodium bomb through your intestinal tract.

Jeanne, you bring up a great question. The recorded message at Lean Cuisine does not answer this question. I will ask the Lean Cuisine spokeswoman when/if I get a call back.

What if you already ate the stuff ?
