Nestlé Recalls Pepperoni Hot Pockets After Glass Found

At least four unlucky eaters found more than cheese, tomato sauce and pepperoni in their Hot Pockets recently. 

Consumers discovered glass and pieces of hard plastic in their cheesy snacks, prompting a massive recall by Nestlé Prepared Foods. The giant food company recalled more than 760,000 pounds of pepperoni Hot Pockets after receiving complaints and “one report of a minor oral injury associated with consumption of this product,” according to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). 

In a statement released Friday, Nestlé said the affected products were in 54-ounce packages of 12 Hot Pockets with a label that reads ““Nestlé Hot Pockets Brand Sandwiches: Premium Pepperoni Made With Pork, Chicken & Beef Pizza Garlic Butter Crust.” These Hot Pockets were produced between November 13 and November 16, had an expiry date of February 2022 and were distributed across the United States and Puerto Rico. 

“The quality, safety and integrity of Nestlé USA and Hot Pockets products remain our number one priority. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this action represents to both our consumers and retail customers,” Nestlé said in the statement. 

FSIS is urging anyone with these products in their freezers to either throw them away or return them to the store where they bought them.
