MIAMI (CBSMiami/CNN) – Nestlé is recalling over 92,000 pounds of its Lean Cuisine meals because some packages may be contaminated with small bits of hard white plastic.
The recall is for the “Baked Chicken” frozen meals which contain white meat chicken with stuffing, red-skinned potatoes and gravy.
The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Saturday that the product might be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of white plastic. It is believed that the mashed potatoes that come with the meal were contaminated with pieces of a plastic conveyor belt that broke during production.

The products being recalled were shipped nationwide and have the establishment number “EST. P-9018” on the side of the case near the lot number. The FSIS hasn’t received any reports of injury or illness, but there are concerns that some of the product may be in consumer’s freezers.
The agency advises anyone who might be concerned about an injury or illness to contact a health care provider. It also advises those who have purchased these products to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Nestlé Prepared Foods, at (800) 993-8625.
