Only recently, Nestlé Prepared Foods Company has made it public news that, following its receiving a total of three complaints from customers, it has decided to voluntarily recall two production codes of its Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli.
The production codes targeted by this recall are 2311587812 and 2312587812, the company explains. Furthermore, it looks like their “best before date” is December 2013.
According to the official website for the US Food and Drug Administration, these batches of mushroon ravioli containing glass shards were produced towards the beginning of November 2012.
Due to the fact that this particular dish is quite popular amongst customers nationwide, Nestlé Prepared Foods Company is quite sure that its acting now to pull the products off store shelves would not yield much benefits.
More precisely, they believe that people must have already bought a considerable number of the mushroom ravioli dishes listed under this recall.
As explained by the US Food and Drug Administration, “Due to its popularity, Nestlé believes very little remains in retail distribution.”
“For this reason, Nestlé is reaching out to consumers to ask that they examine their freezer inventory for specific packages of LEAN CUISINE®, Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli, UPC 13800-58358 with production codes 2311587812 and 2312587812 and a “best before date” which appears as DEC 2013.”
The company urges that the people who may have purchased such Lean Cuisine items refrain from eating them, and contact them for further information and instructions.
Just for the record, no injuries caused by the glass shards which somehow made their way into these portions of mushroom ravioli have been reported thus far.
Still, the company wished to emphasize the fact that, “Nestlé is dedicated to food quality, and the health and safety of its consumers. For these reasons, the company initiated this recall.”
Because of this, “We apologize to our retail customers and consumers and sincerely regret any inconvenience created by this voluntary product recall.”
