LOUISVILLE, Ky. A recall has been issued for over 215,000 pounds of "Hot Pockets Pepperoni Pizza" made at an eastern Kentucky plant.
Nestle Prepared Foods Co. issued the recall on Thursday after receiving complaints from consumers about foreign products inside the stuffed sandwiches. The recalled items were sold in 54-ounce, 12-pack cartons and produced on June 5 at the company's plant in Mt. Sterling, Ky.
The recalled products have the following printed on the sides of each carton: "8157544614D," ''EST 7721A" and "BEST BEFORE JAN2010." The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says each carton bears the USDA mark of inspection.
