Lunchables Recalled By Kraft Heinz Over Allergen Risk


CHICAGO — Kraft Heinz recalled 959 pounds of Lunchables due to misbranding and undeclared allergens on the labels, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said Sunday.

The “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” contain wheat and soy, which are not declared on the label, according to an FSIS statement. 

The products were produced on September 21, 2016, and shipped to stores in Utah and California.

According to the company, the “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” products were incorrectly given back labels meant for a “Nacho Lunchable” product, which was why the product was mislabeled.

“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of this product,” The USDA said in a statement. “Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.”

Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.
