Check your freezers! Nestlé Prepared Foods has recalled over 700,000 pounds of Hot Pockets that may contain glass and plastic pieces. U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the Pepperoni Pizza Hot Pockets are the cause for concern.
The Hot Pockets covered by the recall are only the “premium pepperoni pizza” variety, which come in a 12-pack in a 54 oz. carton. The boxes in question have a Feb. 2022 expiration date and lot codes 0318544624, 0319544614, 0320544614, and 0321544614 printed on the carton. They also include establishment number “EST. 7721A” inside the USDA mark of inspection toward the bottom of the front of the box (pictured here).
The potentially contaminated product was produced from Nov. 13, 2020 through Nov. 16, 2020 and shipped to retail locations nationwide, but since Hot Pockets have a shelf life of 14 months, the products could very well still be in consumers’ freezers.
