RECALL: “Lunchables” recalled due to misbranding, undeclared allergens


WSPA) – Kraft Heinz has recalled about 959 pounds of ready-to-eat “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers,” according to the United States Department of Agriculture.

The packaged lunch products have been recalled due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, USDA says.

The lunch items, which have a “EST. 537K” inside the USDA mark of inspection, were made on September 26  but were not discovered until a little more than a week later after a consumer complained. No illnesses were reported by anyone, the USDA said in the recall notice.

Kraft Heinz Company said the wrong back label was placed on the packaging and did not ” declare wheat and soy on the label.”

  • .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.

Anyone with this product is advised to return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
