Kraft Heinz has recalled a large amount of their Lunchables due to misbranding and undeclared allergens.

The company has recalled 959 pounds of their ready-to-eat “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” due to misbranding on the product label.

The popular children’s lunch snack contains wheat and soy, which were not properly declared on the label.

According to Kraft , the recall affects the meat and cheese packaged lunch items produced on Sept. 21, 2016:

3.4-oz. boxes containing four-compartment plastic trays of “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers,” with a “USE BY” date of 25 DEC 2016 and production times ranging from 9:13 to 10:00 stamped on the side of the plastic container.

Kraft Heinz has determined that the “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” were mislabeled as “Nacho Lunchables.”

The problem was discovered on Oct. 6 when the food enterprise received a consumer complaint. No illnesses were reported with the complaint, but Kraft is urging consumers who have purchased this product not to consume it.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact the Kraft Heinz Consumer Relations Center, at 1-800-573-3877.
