Nestlé is recalling approximately 16,890 pounds of Stouffer’s lasagna frozen entrees as they may inadvertently contain stuffed peppers. The stuffed peppers contain Worcestershire sauce made with anchovies, a known allergen that is not declared on the lasagna labels. The problem was discovered after two consumer complaints. The problem may have occurred when the lasagna packaging materials remained in the packaging machinery when the company began packaging stuffed pepper entrées.
- 19 1/8-oz (542-g) cartons of “Stouffer’s Lasagna Italiano” with a “best before” date of “JAN 2014”
- Shipping cases of “Stouffers DS STFD Peppers,” each containing 12 cartons that may be labeled with “Stouffer’s Lasagna Italiano”
Each carton and case is imprinted with EST. 7991. The cartons and cases also bear the package code “1349595513R” or “1349595513S.” No other package codes are affected by this recall. Additionally, each 19 1/8-oz. carton contains an identifying retail UPC code “13800 44709.”
The products subject to recall were produced on Dec. 15, 2011, and were shipped to retail establishments east of the Mississippi River.
