Lean Cuisine spaghetti and meatballs is recalled after five customers find plastic pieces in Lean Cuisine packages.

The red plastic appears to be from an emergency stop button, the company says. And that’s something of a mystery, because Nestle’s plant in Gaffney, S.C., which produced the recalled packages, had no reports of a broken button. Also, the plant was designed so that no emergency-stop button would be near areas where food was in transit.
That is why Nestlé is recalling an hour’s worth of production of its Lean Cuisine Simple Favorites Spaghetti with Meatballs and urging consumers to check their freezers.
