Lunchables Recalled Due to Undeclared Allergens and Misbranding

Lunchables Recalled Due to Undeclared Allergens and Misbranding

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON, Oct. 9, 2016 – Kraft Heinz Company, a Fullerton, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 959 pounds of ready-to-eat “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” packaged lunch products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains wheat and soy, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label. 

The ready-to-eat meat and cheese packaged lunch items were produced on September 21, 2016. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF only)]

  • 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. These items were shipped to retail locations in Utah and California.  

The problem was discovered on October 6, 2016, when the firm received a consumer complaint. There were no illnesses associated with the complaint.

The establishment determined that the “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” products were incorrectly labeled with the back label for a “Nacho Lunchable” product. The back label contains the product ingredient statements and as such, the “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” products that were mislabeled do not declare wheat and soy on the label.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an injury or 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.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact the Kraft Heinz Consumer Relations Center, at 1-800-573-3877. Members of the media with questions about the recall can contact Lynne Gaila, Corporate Affairs Director, Kraft Heinz Company, at (847) 646-4396 or lynne.galia@kraftheinzcompany.com.
