Attention, all parents of Lunchable eaters: The Ham and American Cracker Stackers Lunchables are being recalled due to a labeling mistake.

Kraft Heinz (the company that produces Lunchables) is recalling nearly 1,000 pounds of the cracker sandwiches, according to a news release from the Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. The Ham and American Cracker Stackers were shipped to stores without a label warning that the contents contained wheat and soy, which are potential allergens.

The recall includes 3.4 oz. boxes of Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers with a "Use By" date of December 25. Production times range from 9:13 to 10:00, which consumers can find stamped on the side of the plastic Lunchables container. The recalled items were shipped to stores in Utah and California and all have the number "EST. 537K" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

Kraft Heinz determined the ham and cheese lunches were accidentally labeled with the product ingredients for a nacho Lunchable, which uses a corn-based chip rather than a wheat cracker. FSIS posted photos of the labels to clarify confusion over which products were affected—and which contain ingredients that could cause wheat and soy allergic reactions.

So far, there haven't been any illnesses associated with the complaint, but customers are urged not to eat the product. Instead, throw it away or return it to the place of purchase. If you have other questions about the recall, contact Kraft Heinz at 1-800-573-3877.
