Nestle Prepared Foods Company has recalled approximately 10,260 pounds of frozen spaghetti and meatball entrees that may contain foreign materials. Specifically, it is the 9.5-oz. packages of Lean Cuisine Simple Favorites Spaghetti with Meatballs that are of concern, according to the production company.

Nestle announced the recall on Monday in response to customers reporting red plastic in the meatball portion of the meal. The company is encouraging customers to check their own freezer inventory.

Area H-E-B, Walmart and Foodliner stores said they were not affected by this recall, but Fort Hood's Commissary was. Post officials said the affected products have been removed from shelves and were not sold to customers. Signs alerting customers to the recall have been placed on freezer doors.

The packages being recalled bear the manufacturing establishment number "P-7991" and the case code "0298595519P" and a Best Before date of November 2011 printed on the side of the package underneath the ingredient listing.

Products were packaged on Oct. 25, 2010, and shipped to distributors and retail stores east of the Rocky Mountains.

If someone has one of these packages, Nestle said to discard it and call the Lean Cuisine consumer hotline at (866) 606-8264.
