The Mt. Sterling, Ky., company has received four consumer complaints and no reports of injuries. Spokeswoman Roz O'Hearn said the reported foreign substance -- hard red plastic as well as clear flexible rubber-like material -- might have splintered off from a testing device and some of it could be buried inside with sharp edges.
The recall involves 54-ounce, 12-pack cartons of Hot Pockets Pepperoni Pizza brand stuffed sandwiches. Printed on the side of each carton is "8157544614D," "EST 7721A," and "BEST BEFORE JAN2010." They were produced on June 5 and distributed to retail establishments nationwide.
For more information, consumers should call 800-350-5016.
I'm sorry, but doesn't the Hot Pocket sort of already qualify as a foreign material?
Have you ever had one of these things? Oh, it's no Nutraloaf, and I'd eat one if I were hungry enough, but these are...not good. Blazing hot mystery meat in a soup of melted cheese substitute, surrounded by a pasty pastry shell. Yummy-yum!
