Entenmann’s Little Bites recalled for plastic contamination

HORSHAM, P.A. (WNCT) — Bimbo Bakeries has issued a voluntary recall for an unspecified number of its Entenmann’s Little Bites fudge brownies, chocolate chip muffins and variety packs that may contain “small pieces of plastic.”

The recall notice warned of a “choking and/or cutting hazard.”

It affects brownies and chocolate chip muffin packages with a “best by” date of October 8, and variety packs with a “best by” date of September 24. All of the affected products were shipped to retailers in at least 30 states within the past two weeks.

The recall includes Little Bites Chocolate Chip Muffins, Little Bites Fudge Brownies and Little Bites Variety – 20 pack sold in Virginia — as well as Little Bites Variety – 20 pack sold in North Carolina.

In a press release, Bimbo Bakeries says it received complaints from consumers who found plastic in the product, and an injury was reported. Bimbo Bakeries said it determined the problem stems a “manufacturing failure at a contract manufacturer’s bakery in Illinois.”
