Kraft Heinz is recalling one of its Lunchables products as it contains wheat and soy which are not declared on the label.

The problem was discovered last week when the firm received a consumer complaint but there have been no associated illnesses.

The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS) said 959 pounds of ready-to-eat “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” packaged lunch products are involved.

The 3.4-oz. boxes containing four-compartment plastic trays, with a use by of 25 DEC 2016 and production times from 9:13 to 10:00 on the side of the plastic container have been recalled.

RTE meat and cheese packaged lunch items were produced on September 21 and shipped to retail in Utah and California.

Products were incorrectly labeled with the back label for a “Nacho Lunchable” item. The back label contains the product ingredient statements so wheat and soy are not declared.

Consumers who bought the product are urged to throw it away or return to the place of purchase.
