Nestle has issued a Class I recall of at least 760,000 pounds of Hot Pockets contaminated with glass and hard plastic shards.

The company revealed that four customers complained after they spotted plastic objects in the products with one of them sustaining minor oral injuries.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service warned customers over “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 warning urged people storing the sandwiches to check the products and get rid of the suspicious ones or return them to the retailer.

Weeks ago, Nestle had issued a recall of 92,000 pounds of Chicken sandwiches that may be “contaminated by extraneous materials, specifically a piece of white hard plastic.”

In a statement, the company apologized for the inconvenience the recall may cause to consumers and retailers.

It added: “The quality, safety, and integrity of Nestle USA and Hot Pockets products remain our number one priority.”
