Several well known national brands of hamburger and hot dog buns, as well as lesser-known regional brands, are under recall by Flowers Foods Inc. because pieces of hard plastic present a choking hazard.
The mega-baker issued the recall specifically because of “plastic pieces found in products,” according to the company’s recall notice posted with the Food and Drug Administration. In addition to the buns, Flowers Foods is recalling other bakery products.
See the list below for the dozens of products included in the recall. The recall notice does not include any product photographs.
The Thomasville, GA, company “is one of the largest producers of fresh packaged bakery foods in the United States with 2018 sales of $4 billion,” the recall notice says.
Flowers Foods distributed the buns and other implicated bakery products in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.
