I wouldn't touch the things now, but when I was a kid the highlight of my school day lunches was getting to see which Lunchable my parents had packed for me to eat that day.
Unfortunately, 959 pounds of Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers are being recalled due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The recalled ready-to-eat meat and cheese packaged lunch items have a USE BY date of 25 DEC 2016; the product also contains two known but undeclared allergens: wheat and soy.
Happily enough, even though the problem was discovered on Oct. 6, when a consumer issued a complaint with the firm, no illnesses were associated with the complaint.
The issue was that the recalled Lunchables were incorrectly labeled as Nacho Lunchables, thereby rendering all of the nutrition facts and warning statements on the packages false.
Here is a comparison of the two different products’ nutrition labels:
If you have purchased these Lunchables, the FSIS asks that instead of consuming them, you either throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
If you have any further questions, they ask that you call the manufacturer for Lunchables, Heinz, at 1-800-573-3877.
