What is the Latest Food Recall?
We expect the products we buy to be safe for our use and consumption. Unfortunately, that is not always the case and sometimes the products we use and consume can pose potential hazards to our health and safety. When this happens, it is common for the company that makes the product to issue a recall for it. Recently the food company, J & J Snack Foods Handhelds Corp., has issued a recall for over 56,000 pounds of their stuffed sandwich products.
The recall comes after the discovery that the sandwiches may be contaminated with extraneous materials. The company believes that it is possible that the sandwiches contain pieces of transparent plastic. The potential hazard was announced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service on Friday, April 15.
The recalled sandwich products were made on February 19 and February 20. These types of sandwiches are included in the recall:
- “Bremer Classic Pepperoni Pizza Hot Stuffed Sandwiches” with best by dates of August 12, 2020 or August 13, 2020 on the label.
- “Bremer Classic Ham and Cheese Hot Stuffed Sandwiches” with best by dates of August 12, 2020 or August 13, 2020 on the label.
Additionally, the sandwich products that are included in the recall have the same establishment number. The establishment number is EST. 27231.
The recalled products were shipped all across the country for sale. The recall came after the Department of Agriculture began receiving consumer reports of there being plastic in the products. There have not been any reports of injuries or illnesses stemming from consumption of the products.
Consumers who have the recalled products should not consume them. People who have them should either throw them away or return them to the store where they were purchased.
