(FOX 5 NY) - North Carolina-based J & J Snack Foods Handhelds Corp. is recalling almost 60,0009 pounds of frozen stuffed sandwich products packaged under the Bremer brand because of the risk of contamination by pieces of semi-transparent plastic, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The USDA is calling this a Class I recall, which means it is due to a high health risk.
"This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death," the USDA said.
The recalled sandwiches—Bremer Classic Pepperoni Pizza Hot Stuffed Sandwiches and Bremer Classic Ham & Cheese Hot Stuffed Sandwiches—were made on Feb. 19 and Feb. 20, 2019, and were distributed nationwide, the USDA said.
These are the specific products affected:
- Bremer Classic Pepperoni Pizza Hot Stuffed Sandwiches, 9-oz. cartons, best if used by AUG 12 2020 or AUG 13 2020, EST. 27231 (inside USDA mark of inspection)
