Plastic Particles in Food Prompts Lean Cuisine Recall

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on March 12, 2011

Nestle Prepared Foods has announced a recall after receiving reports of plastic particles found in their Lean Cuisine Simple Favorites, Spaghetti with Meatballs product. Nestle is recalling 10,260 pounds of the product after receiving complaints from buyers in three different states about pieces of hard plastic found in the food. Inspectors with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Inspection Services also found chunks of plastic in Nestle’s Lean Cuisine Simple Favorites, Spaghetti with Meatballs product. They reported that the tainted food appears to have been sold in states west of the Rocky Mountains.

Nestle is asking customers to check packages of the spaghetti for establishment number P-7991 and case code 0298595519P. The meals affected by the recall have a UPC code of 13800-10390 printed on the side of the package and a best-by date of November 2011. Nestle is asking people who have bought the product to call their consumer services at 866-606-8264, and the company is advising them not to eat it.

It seems that hardly a day passes by without some type of recall in the news. A spate of auto-related recalls has dominated the news in recent months, but few recalls resonate as much with people as tainted food. We have a right to expect all companies to manufacture their products with care and the utmost attention to safety, particularly products intended for human consumption. Plastic particles in food are a serious concern because they present a significant threat to children. A chunk of plastic can become lodged in a child’s throat, preventing him or her from being able to breathe.

Orlando personal injury lawyer James O. Cunningham is monitoring developments in this food recall very closely. Even though the tainted food appears to have only been sold in western states, there is no guarantee that this tainted food hasn’t presented a serious health risk in other states such as Florida. If you or a close family member has suffered illness or injury due to contaminated Lean Cuisine Spaghetti with Meatballs or another defective product and you want to learn more about your rights and legal options, call 888-425-2004 or 407-425-2000.
