The company has issued a recall for 9.5-oz. packages of its "Lean Cuisine Simple Favorites" spaghetti with meatballs dinners. The recall is limited to specific packages with the production code "0298595519P." The code can be found by looking for the gray "proof of purchase" label beneath the product's ingredient statement. The entrées carry a "best before" date of November 2011 and were shipped to retail stores east of the Rocky Mountains.
Nestle recalled the products after consumers in Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin complained that they had discovered pieces of hard red plastic in the frozen dinners.
The company is telling consumers who purchased these Lean Cuisine dinners with the above production code not to consume the product. Instead they should contact the company at (866) 606-8264 or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
