Chow Mmmmm, HOT POCKETS: Now with Foreign Materials!
posted by August 27 at 12:27 PMon
The greatness/grossness of the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service email updates is indisputable (remember our old friends Class II Recall of Frozen Cattle Heads That Contain Prohibited Materials and Hot Beef Carcasses?). Now the USDA is being good enough to tell you WHERE the food with E. coli, Listeria, botulism, “undeclared allergens,” mislabeling, and good old “adulteration” is being sold, so if you got some, you might have a clue about it. (Or, if you didn’t get some, maybe you still could!)
The latest recall is from Nestlé, involving approximately 215,660 pounds of pepperoni HOT POCKETS® that “may contain [unspecified but presumably undelicious] foreign materials” (“The problem was discovered after the company received consumer complaints”).
Where can you get some?
Wal-Mart Stores & Wal-Mart Supercenters, Natiionwide [sic]
Ramey’s, Various locations in Mississippi
Easy Way Stores, Memphis TN [love the name!]
Superlo Foods, Memphis TN [ditto; my new band’s name]
…and in more convenient Southern locations.
You may sign up for the USDA FSIS emails here. As with HOT POCKETS®, you’ll “Get more of what you’re hungry for”!
