Nestlé is recalling about 762,615 pounds of the Hot Pockets pizza product, the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the US Department of Agriculture (FSIS) announced on Friday.
This recall includes 54-ounce boxes of the premium pepperoni pizza made with pork, chicken, and beef, containing 12 pieces with a garlic butter crust.
The product has the batch codes 0318544624, 0319544614, 0320544614 and 0321544614, and an expiration date of February 2022. The boxes also have the establishment number “EST. 7721A ”within the USDA mark of inspection.
The hot pockets were shipped nationwide in November 2020 and manufactured from November 13-16. The product is being recalled due to possible contamination with foreign materials, specifically glass and plastic parts.
Nestlé revealed that these products could “present a risk of suffocation or laceration and should not be consumed”, as reported on NBC.
Nestlé became aware of the problem after receiving four complaints from customers who reported finding foreign material. So far, they have received a report of a minor oral injury associated with the consumption of the affected product. FSIS has not received any additional reports of injury or illness arising from this batch of products.
