It is up to companies to have strong quality control systems in place to ensure that the products they make are not defective and that they are safe for people to consume. It is indeed fortunate that no one was injured by these glass fragments in the food
Newport Beach CA (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
Nestle has issued a voluntary product defect recall for more than 500,000 dishes of its frozen Lean Cuisine mushroom ravioli after three customers reported finding glass shards in the entrees.
According to a Feb. 12 USA Today news, no other products are involved in the recall and so far, no injuries or illnesses have been reported. The recall covers packages of Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli produced in early November and distributed nationwide, the report states.
The recalled packages were marked with the UPC number 13800-58358, product codes of 2311587812 and 2312587812 and a "best before" date of December 2013, according to the company's news release issued Feb. 8. The news release states that the recalled entrees were manufactured in early November 2012.
Since these are popular products, Nestle officials state in the release that few of these products remain in distribution, the release states. The company is asking consumers to examine their freezers to ensure that they do not have any of the entrees left. If they do have them, Nestle asks that they refrain from consuming the product and instead call Nestle Consumer Services at 1-866-586-9424 or email leancuisine(at)casupport.com for further information and instructions. The company states in the release that no other products were involved in the recall.
"Manufacturers have a legal obligation to ensure that their products are safe for consumers," said John Bisnar, founder of the Bisnar | Chase personal injury law firm. "It is up to companies to have strong quality control systems in place to ensure that the products they make are not defective and that they are safe for people to consume. It is indeed fortunate that no one was injured by these glass fragments in the food"
"A voluntary recall by the manufacturer is a step in the right direction. This type of "early action" on their part can help avoid injuries later on. Food products in particular can cause serious injury or illness if contaminated," he said. "Anyone who has been injured as the result of a defective product has legal rights. Injured victims in such cases can file a product liability claim against the manufacturer of the defective product seeking damages for the injuries, damages and losses they may have sustained."
