The Kraft Heinz Company is recalling 959 pounds of some "Lunchables" packaged lunch products in two states due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Kraft Heinz announced the recall Sunday of Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers because they contain known allergens wheat and soy, which are not listed on the product label.

The recalled items were produced Sept. 21, 2016, and sold in Utah and California. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 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.

Authorities said the problem was discovered Oct. 6, 2016, when the firm received a consumer complaint.

No illnesses or adverse reactions related to this recall have been confirmed.

Consumers who have purchased this product are urged to throw them away or returned them to the place of purchase. Anyone with questions about the recall can call the Kraft Heinz Consumer Relations Center at 800-573-3877.
