(MEDIA GENERAL) – Nearly 1,000 pounds of Kraft brand Lunchables are being recalled to a labeling mistake.

The Kraft Heinz Company announced the recall Sunday after it was discovered 959 pounds of “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” packaged lunches were mislabeled as “Nacho Lunchables.” The error means the packages do not include the proper allergens present.

Unlike the Nacho Lunchables, the Ham and Cheese packages include wheat and soy ingredients.

The recall affects the ham and cheese packaged lunch items produced on September 21, 2016. Per the USDA, the recalled items are 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.

According to a statement by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, no illnesses have been reported due to the mistake.
