WASHINGTON, Aug. 25 (UPI) -- The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service said 215,660 pounds of Hot Pockets-brand pepperoni pizza sandwiches are being recalled due to a health hazard.
Nestle Prepared Foods Co. of Mount Sterling, Ky., said the recalled products, distributed nationally, were 54-ounce, 12-pack cartons of Hot Pockets Pepperoni Pizza-brand stuffed sandwiches. Printed on the side of each carton is "8157544614D," "EST 7721A" and "Best Before JAN2010."
