I am a “Lean Cuisine” gal..... and I want to post this to give you a heads up if you eat them too.  The following article just appeared on msnbc.com.  Certain chicken meals may contain pieces of hard plastic, according to the company.

Nestlé Prepared Foods Company in Springville, Utah is recalling approximately 879,565 pounds of frozen chicken meals that may contain foreign materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said. The objects were identified as small pieces of hard plastic, which were discovered after the company received consumer complaints and a report of one injury.  

The following products are subject to recall:  

9.5-ounce packages of "Lean Cuisine Pesto Chicken with Bow Tie Pasta” brand frozen meals. Printed on each side of each package is a production code of "8280595912," as well as a use-by date of "Best Before MAY 2010."  

10.5-ounce packages of "Lean Cuisine Chicken Mediterranean" brand frozen meals. Printed on the side of each package is a production code of "8231595912" or "8241595912," as well as a use-by date of "Best before SEP 2010"; a production code of "8263595912," "8269595911" or "8274595912," as well as a use-by date of "Best before OCT 2010"; or, a production code of "8291595912" or "8301595912," as well as a use-by date of "Best before NOV 2010."  

12.5-ounce packages of "Lean Cuisine Chicken Tuscan" brand frozen meals. Printed on the side of each package is a production code of "8234595911" and a use-by date of "Best before SEP 2009"; a production code of "8253595911" or "8269595912" as well as a use-by date of "Best before OCT 2009"; or, a production code of "8292595911" or "8296595911" as well as a use-by date of "Best before NOV 2009."  

Each package also bears the USDA mark of inspection, as well as the establishment number "EST P-9018." The frozen chicken meals were produced on Aug. 18, Aug. 21, Aug. 28, Sept. 9, Sept. 19, Sept. 25, Sept. 30, Oct. 6, Oct. 17-18, Oct. 22 and Oct. 27 and were distributed to grocery stores nationwide.
