Bread Recalled Because Broken Light Bulb Is Not Supposed To Be An Ingredient

When crafting a tasty sandwich for lunch, the one ingredient you don’t want to forget is a broken light bulb. Wait, what? Shards of light bulb certainly don’t belong in our digestive systems, that’s why Bimbo Bakeries has issued a recall of several types of bread.

Bimbo Bakeries – which sells bread under the Sara Lee, Kroger, Nature Harvest, Great Value, L’Oven and Bimbo brands – announced Wednesday that it would recall of nearly 48,000 packages of bread sold in 11 states.

The recall was initiated after Bimbo received three consumer reports of small pieces of glass found on the outside of the bread. No injuries were reported.

The Pennsylvania-based company says the recall covers seven different Sara Lee products, two breads sold under the Nature’s Harvest and Great Value brands, and one each from the Kroger, L’Oven Fresh and Bimbo brands sold in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

Bimbo says that all recalled products have been removed from store shelves. Bread previously purchased can be identified by the “best by” dates ranging from Aug. 29 to Sept. 1 and a listed “bakery code” of 1658.

Customers who bought the recalled bread can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Here’s full list of the recalled bread:
