FOR RELEASE: Feb 11, 2013
DENVER – The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment today announced a voluntary recall by Nestlé Prepared Foods Company of two production codes of LEAN CUISINE® Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli, UPC 13800-58358. The two production codes are 2311587812 and 2312587812 and the “best before date” appears as DEC 2013. The frozen entrées are being recalled due to the possible presence of glass fragments.
Nestlé is taking this action after three consumers reported they found small fragments of glass in the ravioli portion of the entrée. No injuries were reported by any of the consumers.
The frozen entrées were distributed to retail stores nationwide, including Colorado, and may have been available for purchase at King Soopers locations.
The entrée being recalled was produced during early November 2012. Nestlé is reaching out to consumers to ask them to examine their freezer inventory for these specific packages. 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 not consume the product, but instead contact Nestlé Consumer Services at 866-586-9424. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Eastern Time. Nestlé will provide a replacement coupon to reporting consumers and also may make arrangements to retrieve the product for further examination.
