Pillsbury recall: That pudgy Pillsbury Doughboy may contain more than just dough these days. General Mills on Sept. 6 issued a news release, recalling their Pillsbury cinnamon rolls, saying that fragments of plastic were suspected to be in some of their refrigerated rolls.
“This action is being taken as a precaution because the dough may contain fragments from a broken piece of plastic on the production line,” the General Mills statement said. “These products are sold in grocery stores nationally. No other Pillsbury dough products are being recalled. “
The specific item recalled are the 8-count single and double packages of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing, bearing the following product expiration dates and coding:
- Single pack: 30OCT2013 and 31OCT2013
- Double pack: 18OCT2013, 26OCT2013 and 31OCT2013
The precautionary recall was issued by General Mills after it was discovered some plastic shards fell into their product during production. To date, there have not been any reported instances of consumers finding any plastic shards in their cinnamon rolls. The products were sold in grocery stores across the U.S.
