Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin is alerting consumers to the recall of some frozen chicken meals manufactured by Nestlé Prepared Foods Company of Springville, Utah. The company is recalling approximately 879,565 pounds of Lean Cuisine chicken meals that may contain foreign objects.
Each package also bears the USDA mark of inspection as well as the establishment number “EST P-9018.” The frozen chicken meals were produced on Aug. 18, Aug. 21, Aug. 28, Sept. 9, Sept. 19, Sept. 25, Sept. 30, Oct. 6, Oct. 17-18, Oct. 22 and Oct. 27 and were distributed to retail establishments nationwide.
The problem was discovered after the company received consumer complaints and a report of one injury. The company identified the foreign objects as small pieces of hard plastic. USDA Food Safety Inspection Service has not received other reports of injury. Anyone concerned about an injury from consumption of the products should consult a medical professional.
Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Nestlé Consumer Services Center at 1-800-993-8625.
“Our Georgia Department of Agriculture sanitarians will be checking store shelves as part of their routine inspections to make sure these products are removed,” said Irvin.
