Not The Hot Pockets! Here’s The Latest Recall to Watch Out For
It's time to shuffle through your freezer to check if you have the latest recall. Listen, the last thing anyone needs is to bite into your Hot Pocket after a long day only to find glass or plastic inside. That sounds like the worst snacking experience EVER.
Nestlé Prepared Foods is recalling more than 700,000 pounds of Hot Pockets because they may be contaminated with pieces of glass or hard plastic. Apparently the company said they’ve received four complaints of consumers finding glass and plastic pieces in their frozen, not-ready-to-eat pepperoni Hot Pockets. And apparently one of those complaints involved a “minor oral injury,”.
So how do you know if you have these in your freezer or not? WGN details -
