If You Have This Popular Frozen Meal at Home, Throw It Away Right Now
If you've tried to make your life a little easier and healthier these days - and who really hasn't? - there is a good chance you have some frozen low calorie meals in your refrigerator. But maybe they are not all as healthy as you would hope. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) warns Americans to check their freezers this week after Lean Cuisine recalled one of their favorite meals. Read on to see if you have it at home, and for yet another callback that should be on your radar, read If You Have That Bread At Home, Remove It Now.
The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issued a warning regarding a Nestlé-made Lean Cuisine baked chicken flour that "may be contaminated with foreign materials, particularly pieces of white hard plastic." The problem emerged after Nestlé received five complaints from consumers who discovered plastic in their food. The company believes the problem was due to a break in the plastic conveyor belt during the making of the mashed potatoes, and fragments of it ended up in the side dish of the meal.
The meal in question was made and packaged on September 2, 2020 and is labeled as "Lean Cuisine Baked Chicken, White Meat Chicken with Filling, Red Skin Mashed Potatoes and Sauce" with the batch code 0246595911 and a best-by date of Oct. 2021 The company number "EST. P-9018" is also printed on the boxes in question.
The recall extends to approximately 92,206 pounds of the Lean Cuisine product.
Although no injuries or illnesses have been reported, the FSIS advises any consumer who still has this product to throw it away or return it to the point of sale.

Stuffed Food Mac & Cheese Bites

Another frozen product recently pulled from grocery store freezers was Mac & Cheese Bites from Stuffed Foods LLC. A recall was issued when it was discovered that the packages actually contained the brand's Buffalo-style Chicken Poppers. Sure frustrating, but the wrongly contained product also contained soy, a known allergen that wasn't listed on the label. The FSIS has identified the recall as Class II, which means that it is a "hazardous situation in which the likelihood of adverse health effects from the use of the product is low".

Country Meats Pork Snack Sticks
Smoked thin pork stick snack
Country Meats, a company that offers 12 types of smoked snacks that sell for as little as $ 1 each for fundraising, has issued a recall for its Hot BBQ Flavor Smoked Pork Snack Sticks. There was a packaging problem that resulted in some of the Hot BBQ sticks being filled with chili cheese flavored instead, the latter containing milk, the FSIS reported. The BBQ flavor does not contain dairy products, which means milk was not listed in the ingredients, making it dangerous for those with a milk allergy.

Publix vacation cookie plates
Publix's seasonal Christmas cookie plates went through an emergency recall after they were found to contain undeclared pecans, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Because the packaging didn't reveal the nuts, they posed a serious risk to those suffering from nut allergies, which are considered more serious at the end of the allergy spectrum and potentially life-threatening and even fatal reactions.
