Lunchables Recalled Over Misbranding, Allergy Concerns

LOS ANGELES ( — Kraft Heinz Company is recalling more than 900 pounds of Lunchables products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Monday.

The problem was discovered Thursday when a consumer notified the company of products that were incorrectly labeled.

The following ready-to-eat meat and cheese packaged lunch items, which were produced on Sept. 21, are subject to the recall:

— “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers:” 3.4-oz. boxes containing four-compartment plastic trays of that have a “USE BY” date of Dec. 25, 2016, and production times ranging from 9:13 to 10:00 stamped on the side of the plastic container.

Federal health officials said the meals could contain undeclared allergens, including wheat and soy.

The Lunchables, which bear the establishment number “EST. 537K” inside the USDA mark of inspection, were shipped to retail locations in California and Utah.

There have been no reports of illnesses associated with the complaint, but officials say anyone with concerns should contact a healthcare provider.

Any consumers who have purchased this product have been urged to throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.

Questions about the recall can be directed to the Kraft Heinz Consumer Relations Center at (800) 573-3877.
