Recall Alert: Don't Bite Down on That Hot Pocket!

Recall Alert: Don't Bite Down on That Hot Pocket!

Yikes! Nestlé Prepared Foods, the manufacturer of Hot Pockets, is recalling more than 215,000 pounds of Hot Pockets Pepperoni Pizza after several pieces of red, hard plastic and clear rubber material were discovered inside some of the pockets. The recall is for 54-ounce, 12-pack cartons of Hot Pockets Pepperoni Pizza with the following codes printed on the sides of each carton: 8157544614D, EST 7721A, and BEST BEFORE JAN2010.

This is the second recall this Summer for Hot Pockets. Just last month, 350,000 packages of two-pack Spinach Artichoke Chicken Lean Pockets were recalled for the same reason. Perhaps it's time to lay off the pockets for a while.

My mom saw some on sale at HEB so she bought a bunch for my husband. Eeek! I hate having them around because it's like crap in my freezer that I'm tempted to eat. Even the lean ones taste like sh!t.30-40g carbs.. 7-10g sugar.. 7-10gfat.. tons of sodium.. just a waste. I'd rather fk up on a better tasting meal or have a nice juicy salad that will actually fill me up.
