Fast Action Follows Recall

Retailers alert customers quickly to Lean Cuisine's recall.

According to the Agriculture Department, several types of Lean Cuisine meals may contain "foreign materials" that could be deadly. The recall applies to frozen chicken meals, including pesto chicken with bow tie pasta and chicken Mediterranean. At least one consumer has reported an injury from small pieces of plastic found in the meals.

One of my colleagues tells me that her grocery store, Harris Teeter, has already given her a call warning her about the recall since she has purchased Lean Cuisine meals recently. Giant Food has also issued a recall.

Curiously, I cannot find any reference to the recalls on Lean Cuisine's website. If your retailer acted quickly to warn you about the risk, please let us know.
