#Roommates, we’re hoping this news doesn’t ruin cookout season. Before you go grilling this weekend, we want to inform you that several brands of hamburger buns and hot dog rolls are being recalled.
#FlowerFoods is recalling its hamburger and hot dog rolls and buns because of a potential choking hazard from small pieces of hard plastic, according to @cnn. The Georgia-based company announced it today in a statement.
The company said that it found small pieces of the hard plastic inside production equipment, but there has not been any illness or injuries reported because of it.
Some of the products were sold under the brand names of 7-Eleven, Great Value, Food Depot, Market Pantry, Natural Grain, Nature’s Own, Publix and Wonder.
The recalled items were distributed in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
Flowers Foods says that consumers with any of these products should immediately throw them out or return them from where they bought them for a full refund.
“The company initiated the recall following the discovery of small pieces of hard plastic in production equipment,” the statement said. “No related injuries or illnesses have been reported. People should not consume these products.
Consumers should discard affected product or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may call Flowers’ Consumer Relations Center at 1-866-245-8921.
