Nestle' Recalls Large Batch of 'Hot Pockets'
By The Associated Press
MOUNT STERLING, KY - Nestlé Prepared Foods, based in Mount Sterling, Kentucky, is recalling more than 762,000 pounds of pepperoni Hot Pockets, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said.

The frozen stuffed sandwiches — shipped to retail stores nationwide — are being recalled because they “may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of glass and hard plastic,” the USDA said Friday.

The problem was discovered when the company received four consumer complaints of extraneous material in pepperoni Hot Pockets, the department said. The company has received one report of a “minor oral injury” associated with consumption of the product, the USDA said.

The recall is for 54-ounce packages containing 12 “Nestlé Hot Pockets Brand Sandwiches: Premium Pepperoni made with pork, chicken and beef pizza garlic buttery crust." 
Affected boxes have a “Best before Feb 2022" date and lot codes of 0318544624, 0319544614, 0320544614 and 0321544614.
