When consumers purchase food products, they expect the items not to contain foreign elements, especially glass. Nestle USA issued a recall on March 10 over concerns that pieces of glass may be in some Stouffer’s, Lean Cuisine and DiGiorno products.

The recall was voluntary by Nestle USA, and there have been no injuries reported. The source of the glass particles is believed to be spinach, which is an ingredient that all of the recalled products had in common. Several consumers have reported to Nestle that glass pieces were found in some of the products.
