(Meredith) -- Lean Cuisine is recalling 92,206 pounds of their frozen baked chicken meals that may be contaminated with plastic, according to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The baked chicken meals were produced and packaged on September 2, 2020.
8 5/8-oz. (244g) carton trays of “LEAN CUISINE Baked Chicken, white meat chicken with stuffing, red skin mashed potatoes and gravy” with a lot code of 0246595911 and “Best Before” date of October 2021.
According to the FSIS, the problem was discovered on December 18, 2020, after 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 meals products had pieces of a plastic conveyor belt that broke during production.
FSIS has received no reports of injury or illness from consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
