Kraft Heinz recalls Ham and American Cracker Stacker Lunchables due to “undeclared allergens”

FULLERTON, Calif. (NEWS10) — The Kraft Heinz Company 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 recall affects the meat and cheese packaged lunch items produced on September 21, 2016.

Kraft Heinz determined that the recalled products were mislabeled as “Nacho Lunchables”, and thus the labels did not properly declare wheat and soy ingredients.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) says there have so far been no illnesses due to the consumption of the mislabeled Lunchables.

According to the statement released by the FSIS, consumers who have purchased this product are urged not to consume it. The product should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
