The voluntary recall is limited to these two days of production, which were
distributed nationwide. No other production dates, sizes or varieties of LEAN
CUISINE products are affected by this recall. The reason for the recall is
that the meal may contain fragments of glass. Nestle is taking this action
after three consumers reported they had found small fragments of glass in the
ravioli portion of the entree. No injuries were reported by any of the
consumers.

The entree being recalled was produced during early November, 2012. Due to its
popularity, Nestle believes very little remains in retail distribution.For
this reason, Nestle is reaching out to consumers to ask that they examine
their freezer inventory for specific packages of LEAN CUISINE®, Culinary
Collection Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli, UPC 13800-58358 with production codes
2311587812 and 2312587812 and a "best before date" which appears as DEC 2013.
To locate the production code, consumers should look for the gray "proof of
purchase" panel, located on the right end flap of the package, below the
ingredient statement.

Consumers who may have purchased the recalled LEAN CUISINE item should not
consume the product, but instead should contact Nestle Consumer Services at
(866) 586-9424 or leancuisine@casupport.com for further instructions. Hours of
operation are Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., ET and this
Saturday, February 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nestle will provide a replacement
coupon to reporting consumers and also may make arrangements to retrieve the
product for further examination.

Nestle is dedicated to food quality, and the health and safety of its
consumers. For these reasons, the company initiated this recall. We apologize
to our retail customers and consumers and sincerely regret any inconvenience
created by this voluntary product recall.
