Summer is all about gathering with friends and family and enjoying a fun barbecue, but before you fire up the grill this weekend you're going to want to check your groceries. Georgia based food company Flower Foods has issued a nationwide recall of hamburger and hot dog buns that have been sold nationwide at retailers like Walmart and Aldi.
According to the FDA, Flower Foods issued the voluntary recall of various hamburger and hot dog buns as well as other bakery products due to the possible presence of small pieces of hard plastic. The press release states these plastic pieces may have been introduced during the production process. These pieces pose a possible choking hazard if consumed. There have been no injuries reported to date as a result of the recall.
The products being recalled have been distributed under a variety of brand names including 7-Eleven, Great Value, Home Pride, IGA, Publix and Wonder. They were distributed for sale in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
The following is a full list of the products affected by the recall, including their UPC codes, best by dates and lot numbers:
