Kraft Heinz Recalls Lunchables Due to Undeclared Allergens
Kraft Heinz Company is issuing a recall on 959 pounds of Ham and American Cracker Stackers Lunchables products due to undeclared allergens and misbranding.
About the Kraft Lunchables Recall
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the recall involves products that were branded with the incorrect product label, and in turn, not declaring certain allergens.
The Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stacker packages at the center of the recall received the back labeling for a Nacho Lunchable product. The ingredient statement label does not declare wheat and soy, which the recalled products contain.
Kraft discovered the problem through a customer complaint. According to the USDA, no illnesses have been reported due to the mislabeling and undeclared allergens in the recalled products.
Consumers are urged to discard the product or return it to the place of purchase.
