Nestlé USA Voluntary Recall Affects One Nestlé Professional SKU

Thursday, March 10, 2016

Dear Valued Customer,

As part of the recent Nestlé USA voluntary recall due to the potential presence of foreign material, Nestlé Professional has one affected SKU – Nestlé Professional Stouffer’s Vegetable Lasagna. More information on the affected Nestle Professional product is detailed below. 

Nestlé Professional is taking this action out of an abundance of caution after several consumers reported finding small pieces of glass in retail products using the affected ingredient. No injuries have been reported. Nestlé is investigating the source of the foreign material. Although our investigation is ongoing, we believe the source of the glass is spinach that was an ingredient used in this product.
