Nestle Prepared Foods Co. is recalling three varieties of Lean Cuisine entrees.

A recorded message from the company Tuesday said, “Lean Cuisine is taking this action after several consumers recalled finding small pieces of blue plastic material.”

Nestle received one report of injury, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.

The Lean Cuisine meals in question are the Pesto Chicken with Bow Tie Pasta, the Chicken Mediterranean and the Chicken Tuscan.


Consumers can find out whether their meals are affected by looking at the bar code or UPC label on the boxes and calling Lean Cuisine at (800) 993-8625. No other varieties of Lean Cuisine products are affected by this recall, according to the message.

Media calls were referred to a representative, and a message left there was not immediately returned.
