Lean Pockets Recalled Due to Plastic

Comments Off

Nestle is recalling 350,000 packages of Lean Pockets after plastic was found inside the food. The recalled frozen sandwiches have been sold in stores since the end of May.

The recall is for the 9-ounce boxes of Lean Pockets Spinach Artichoke Chicken. The recalled products have a “Best Before” date of Nov. 2009 and a package code beginning with “8144544616.” Printed on the side of the package is the establishment number “P7721A.”

There were three consumer complaints of finding plastic in their Lean Pocket sandwiches. One person chipped a tooth. The company is asking anyone that has the recalled product not to eat it. They would also like consumers to contact them at 1-800-350-5016 for more information. The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service has classified this as a Class 1 recall which means there is a high health risk.
