Kraft Heinz Recalls Ham and Cheese Lunchables for Undeclared Allergens

Oct 21, 2016
Kraft Heinz Recalls Ham & Cheese Lunchables

FSIS Recalled Kraft Heinz, Lunchables Ham

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that Kraft Heinz Company is recalling approximately 959 pounds of ready-to-eat Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers due to misbranding and undeclared allergens.

The product contains wheat and soy, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label.

FSIS says that the ready-to-eat meat and cheese packaged lunch items were produced on September 21, 2016. The products subject to recall are 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. According to FSIS, these items were shipped to retail locations in Utah and California.

The problem was discovered on October 6, 2016, when the Kraft Heinz received a consumer complaint. No illnesses associated with the complaint.

Lunchables Ham And Cracker Stackers Were Incorrectly Labeled

The establishment determined that Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers products were incorrectly labeled with the back label for a Nacho Lunchables product. The back label contains the product ingredient statements and the incorrect label on the Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers do not declare wheat and soy in the item.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.

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.
