Pepperoni Hot Pockets Recalled For Containing Plastic

What’s that tasty new flavor in your Hot Pocket? Maybe it’s plastic! Nestlé is recalling over 200,000 pounds of Hot Pockets after some pieces of what they suspect is a testing device turned up in the product.

The recall is for 54-ounce, 12-pack cartons of Hot Pockets Pepperoni Pizza with the following printed on the sides of each carton: “8157544614D,” “EST 7721A” and “BEST BEFORE JAN2010.”

If you have some of the recalled product, spit out that plastic and call Nestlé Consumer Services Center at 1-800-350-5016.
