A Pillsbury recall has been issued for certain types of cinnamon rolls because the dough might contain bits of broken plastic from the production line, the Christian Science Monitor reported on Sept. 7.
The Pillsbury recall is only for certain cinnamon rolls with icing. The Pillsbury recall, which was announced Friday, is for Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing with a “better if used” date on the package of 30OCT2013 and 31OCT2013 and for Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing 2-pack with dates of 18OCT2013, 26OCT2013 and 31OCT2013.
The Pillsbury recall is a voluntary recall issued by parent company General Mills on Friday for a limited quantity of the refrigerated cinnamon rolls because of concerns that the dough may contain fragments from a broken piece of plastic that occurred on the rolls’ production line.
The Pillsbury recall was announced on various social media sites, including its Facebook page. Customer comments on the Facebook page ranged from dismay to support for the company. Pillsbury attempted to answer many of the customer comments.
Some comments, for instance, reflected concerns about other Pillsbury products. Pillsbury offered reassurances that Grands! Cinnamon Rolls and Flaky Cinnamon Rolls are safe to eat.
The Pillsbury cinnamon roll products were sold in grocery stores across the U.S, the Huffington Post noted. Consumers who have any recalled products should contact General Mills Inc. at 1-800-775-4777 for a replacement. General Mills is offering a free replacement to anyone who returns a package of the Pillsbury cinnamon roll because of the Pillsbury recall.
