86 tons of Boston Market frozen meals recalled because they may contain glass or hard plastic fragments

Nearly 86 tons of Boston Market frozen meals were recalled because they could contain fragments of glass or hard plastic.

The fast food chain’s boneless pork rib patties can be found in Boston Market Home Style Meals which are labeled as Boneless Pork Rib Shaped Patty with BBQ Sauce & Mashed Potatoes.

According to a statement from the USDA, the recall is being labeled as Class I, which means, “there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”

The USDA was notified on Friday following “consumer complaints of glass or hard plastic extraneous material in the rib shaped patty.” While thankfully, the USDA says, no one seems to have been hurt as a result of consumption thus far, though they warn, “Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.”

Boston Market has removed the salt shakers from the tables in their restaurants nationwide as seen at their Alexandria, Va., restaurant, Tuesday, May 14, 2013. A surprising new report questions how sharply Americans should cut back on salt. Make no mistake: Most Americans eat way too much, not just from salt shakers but because of sodium in processed foods. The Institute of Medicine said Tuesday there's no evidence that cutting well below established guidelines offers any benefit — even though that's recommended for certain people at high risk of heart disease. There are some suggestions that going way too low might harm certain patients. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen)
