Just yesterday, Kraft Heinz recalled one of their most popular brands; ready-to-eat “Lunchables.” Please share this with every parent you know to keep your kids safe.
In a urgent press release on Oct 9, Kraft Heinz, a Fullerton, Calif. establishment, recalled 959 pounds of ready-to-eat Lunchables.
The famous boxed lunch was recalled due to misbranding and undeclared allergens that could cause some children to get sick, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced yesterday.
The product contains wheat and soy, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label. The mislabeling poses a severe threat and “high risk” for children who may be allergic to wheat or soy.
Consumers who have purchased this product are urged not to consume it. This product should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
Food items involved in the recall are as follows:
- 3.4-oz. boxes containing four-compartment plastic trays of “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers,” with a “USE BY” date of 25 DEC 2016 and production times ranging from 9:13 to 10:00 stamped on the side of the plastic container.
- The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 537K” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
