RECALL on 92,000 pounds of Lean Cuisine Chicken Meals!
If you’ve purchased Lean Cuisine Baked Chicken, then don’t miss this recall! Because, the FDA has warned that LEAN CUISINE Baked Chicken meal products may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of white hard plastic.
What is a Recall?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in the United States are the departments responsible for investigating potential problems with food safety. Of course, from their investigations, they may issue warnings to the public. In other words, a Recall by the FDA or CDC means that the product in question is not safe for the specified reason. Additionally, guidelines and instructions are given for each recall, based on the specific threat at hand. For example, they may warn that consumers should not consume the product. Or, they may suggest that the company responsible is willing to refund the purchase price.
Why is There a Recall?
The recall stems from the company receiving five consumer complaints involving hard white plastic found in the product. The firm believes the mashed potatoes used in the production of the baked chicken meal products had pieces of a plastic conveyor belt that broke during production.
