Lunchables Recall: Kraft Heinz Announces Recall Due to Mislabeling Concerns

[profileleft]Lunchables Recall[/profileleft]Parents lead busy lives.  Unlike generations past, both parents work in the majority of American families.  Recent estimates indicate that more than 60 percent of two-parent households see both parents hold jobs of some sort.  That’s why convenience has become so important with regards to feeding children.  Many parents simply don’t have the time to prepare meals, including lunches that kids take to schools.  Kraft Heinz has been capitalizing on that need for convenience – literally – for nearly 30 years with its Lunchables product line.  Lunchables generates more than $1 billion per year in sales.  As such, a Lunchables recall requires the attention of a lot of people.  That’s exactly what happened recently.  Kraft Heinz announced the Lunchables recall because of a problem with the labeling.  The details appear below.

About the Lunchables Recall

According to a press release issued by the United States Department of Agriculture, a consumer complaint prompted the Lunchables recall.  The “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” product included the black label for Kraft Heinz’s “Nacho Lunchable” product.  The nacho product does not contain allergens, but the ham product does.  Specifically, the ham product contains soy and wheat.  The mislabeling therefore does not alert consumers to the presence of these allergens on packages affected by the recall.

The specifics of the Lunchables recall are as follows:

  • The items were produced on September 21, 2016.
  • The products are 3.4 ounces in size and contain four compartments.
  • The “USE BY” date is December 25, 2016.
  • The production times on the side of the container range between 9:13 and 10:00.
  • The establishment number is EST. 537K.  That label is located inside the USDA mark of inspection.

These products were shipped to retail locations in Utah and California.  Consumers who purchased products affected by the recall are advised to either throw the packages away or return them to the retailer where they were purchased.  Those who would like to see the product label in question can find it here.  Anyone with questions regarding this issue can call Kraft Heinz’s Consumer Relations Center at 1-800-572-3877.

Allergic reactions to wheat and soy can range from relatively mild to the point where they are extremely dangerous.  This situation has been classified as a Class I Recall, which means that use of the product creates a reasonable probability of serious health consequences or even death.  A Class I recall is the most serious type of recall.

How a Food Poisoning Lawyer Can Help

No adverse reactions have been reported to date because of this mislabeling problem.  Hopefully that remains the case.  Unfortunately, an enormous number of people fall ill because of food poisoning every year.  According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or the CDC, 48 million people get sick from foodborne illnesses every year in the United States.  If you have been harmed because you consumed tainted food, you could face a difficult situation in proving fault.  Instead of attempting to handle this challenge alone, you should seek the help of a food poisoning lawyer at Gomez Trial Attorneys.  Contact the firm today to schedule a free initial consultation.
