TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Lean Cuisine lovers, check your freezers: Nestle is voluntarily recalling more than 500,000 dishes of frozen Lean Cuisine mushroom ravioli because three customers reported finding glass fragments in the entrees, the company says. No injuries have been reported, according to a company press release.

The recall covers packages of Culinary Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli produced in early November and distributed nationwide. The suspect packages are marked with:

-- The UPC number 13800-58358

-- Production codes of 2311587812 and 2312587812

-- "Best before date" of DEC 2013

No other products are involved, the company says. Customers who find the recalled products should not eat them and should contact Nestle Consumer Services at (866) 586-9424 or leancuisine@casupport.com.

In 2011, Nestle recalled some other Lean Cuisine dinners after customers found red plastic in their food. A 2008 recall of Lean Cuisine entrees was linked to chunks of blue plastic in some meals.

When asked about the multiple recalls, Nestle representative Hannah Coan said in an e-mail: "We observe stringent standards in our own facilities and with our vendors who supply ingredients to us. When we become aware of an issue, we investigate thoroughly and act promptly with our consumer's health and safety as our first priority."
