Recall: Blue Plastic Found in Lean Cuisine Chicken Dinners

Nestle has recalled 900,000 pounds of Lean Cuisine frozen dinners after receiving seven reports that the meals contained small pieces of blue plastic. One person reportedly bit into a piece of the plastic.

The dinners being recalled are the Cafe Classics Pesto Chicken with Bow Tie Pasta, Spa Cuisine Chicken Mediterranean and Dinnertime Selects Chicken Tuscan.

A Nestle spokesperson told ABCNews.com that “there have been no reports of any injuries requiring medical attention.”

O’Hearn said Nestle traced the blue plastic to a single lot of raw ingredients shipped to a Lean Cuisine facility.

“We are requesting that you return recalled items directly to your supermarket for a full refund,” said O’Hearn.

According to the USDA, the contaminated dinners were produced between Aug. 18 and Oct. 27 of this year. To determine whether a dinner in your freezer is contaminated, O’Hearn said consumers can call 800-227-6188 to check the production codes on the side of Lean Cuisine packages.
