Nestle USA is voluntarily recalling certain lots of more than a dozen of its frozen meals because they may contain small pieces of glass, the company said today in a statement.
The recall comes after several consumers reported finding small pieces of glass in some DiGiorno, Lean Cuisine and Stouffer’s meals, the company said. No injuries have been reported, it added.
Spinach — the only ingredient common to all of the affected products — is believed to be the source of the glass particles, a company spokeswoman told ABC News on Thursday. That’s why the California-based company decided to pull all products in its lines containing spinach — about 3 million individual meals, the spokeswoman said.
The affected products include DiGiorno Thin & Crispy Spinach and Garlic Pizza; DiGiorno Rising Crust Spinach and Mushroom Pizza; DiGiorno pizzeria Thin Crust Spinach and Mushroom Pizza; DiGiorno pizzeria Tuscan-style Chicken Pizza; Lean Cuisine Spinach and Mushroom Pizza; Lean Cuisine Spinach Artichoke Ravioli; Lean Cuisine Ricotta and Spinach Ravioli; Lean Cuisine Spinach, Artichoke and Chicken Panini; Lean Cuisine Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli; Stouffer’s Vegetable Lasagna (10 oz., 37 oz. and 96 oz. sizes); Stouffer’s Spinach Soufflé; and Stouffer’s Chicken Lasagna.
The meals are manufactured in plants around the country, but the source of the spinach is the same, the spokeswoman said.
In the statement, the company said that “The quality and safety of our products are the top priority for our company … We are working with both the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture on this voluntary recall and will cooperate with them fully.”
