WASHINGTON More than 10,000 pounds of Lean Cuisine frozen spaghetti and meatball dishes have been recalled because of the possible presence of foreign materials, the Department of Agriculture said late on Monday.
The health risk associated with this recall is low, the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service explained. If the product is consumed, there is only a remote probability of adverse health consequences.
Nestle Prepared Foods received complaints from consumers in Minnesota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin, that consumers had found hard plastic in the frozen meals, the FSIS said.
The products were sold east of the Rocky Mountains in 9.5 ounce units entitled "Lean Cuisine Simple Favorites, Spaghetti with Meatballs" and have the establishment number "EST 7991."
They bear a November 2011 "best before" date on the side of the package.
