Metal Pieces Prompt Pepperidge Farm Recall
Pepperidge Farm, Inc., in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, has announced a recall of some of the company’s Baked Naturals Sesame Sticks product after reports suggested small pieces of wire may be present, according to recent news sources.
The Food and Drug Administration has heard from a few customers who received minor scrapes in their mouth after consuming the product. About 13,000 products are affected.
The boxes are 10.2 ounces and display a “20% MORE!” yellow label across the top. You can view the list of product codes here.
Pepperidge Farms has advised consumers to return their purchase back to where they got it for an exchange or refund.
As a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, I have seen food recalls like this one and know that, although food products are held to rigorous standards and undergo extensive testing before heading to market, mistakes can, and will, be made. Although the product defect lawyer at our law firm does not handle these type of cases there are food recall lawyers out there that can help your or a loved one if you have been affected by a recall such as this one.
