Company issues recall of hot dog and hamburger buns sold by Walmart, Sam's Club
Flowers Foods, the Georgia-based producer of packaged bakery food, has issued a voluntary recall of its hot dog and hamburger buns.
The company announced on Tuesday that it would pull more than 50 products with best-by dates of July 18 and July 19 after it discovered small pieces of hard plastic during production. Several of the recalled products are under the business's Wonder, 7-Eleven, Clover Valley, Nature's Own and Sunbeam brands.
"The company initiated the recall following the discovery of small pieces of hard plastic in production equipment," Flowers Foods said in a release. "No related injuries or illnesses have been reported."
Flowers Foods said it had shipped the hot dog and hamburger buns to stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia. Major grocers such as Walmart, Aldi and Sam's Club are known to carry the company's products.
"Consumers should discard affected product or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund," Flowers Foods said, citing a choking hazard. "Consumers with questions may call Flowers' Consumer Relations Center at 1-866-245-8921."
