The packages bear the establishment number “P-7991” and the case code “0298595519P” and a best before date of November, 2011 printed on the side of the package, underneath the ingredient listing. The spaghetti and meatball products were packaged on Oct. 25, 2010, and shipped to distributors and retail stores east of the Rocky Mountains.

The problem was discovered after the company received complaints from consumers in Minn., S.D. and Wisc., upon finding hard plastic in the product.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

  1. I just ate a Lean Cuisine Spaghetti and Meatballs yesterday.
    Should I worry about it?? I have lots of other ones in my
    freezer, I have the meat sauce, chicken items and so on.
