Flowers Foods, Inc. is voluntarily recalling hamburger and hot dog buns and other bakery products due to the potential presence of small pieces of hard plastic that may have been introduced during production. Consumption of product may cause a choking hazard.
The products being recalled were distributed to retail customers under a variety of brand names and distributed in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Flowers officials say the buns should not be eaten; they should be thrown away or returned for a refund. For a complete list of brand names, Flowers has set up a hotline, which is available weekdays from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. EST: 1-866-245-8921.
