Frozen Boston Market rib entrees recalled for glass, plastic fragments
The boneless patties from Bellisio Foods went to stores nationwide
Bellisio Foods is recalling about 173,000 pounds of frozen Boston Market boneless rib meals that may contain glass or hard plastic, the USDA announced.
In 2015, the company recalled about 285,000 pounds of the Boston Market rib entrees for the same reason.
For this recall, the not-ready-to-eat rib-shaped patties were shipped to stores nationwide and a Department of Defense facility in Tucson, Ariz., the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says.
The products, Boston Market Home Style Meal boneless pork rib shaped patty with BBQ sauce and mashed potatoes, come in 14-ounce black cardboard boxes and were made on various dates from Dec. 7, 2018, to Feb. 15, 2019.
They have establishment number “Est. 18297” on the carton flap and best by dates of 12/07/2019 and lot code 8341; 01/04/2020 and lot code 9004; 01/24/2020 and lot code 9024; or 02/15/2020 and lot code 9046.
The problem was discovered when consumers complained to the Jackson, Ohio, company about glass or hard plastic in the patties. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions or injuries.
People who bought the products should throw them away or return them to the stores where purchased, FSIS advises.
Consumers with questions about the recall may contact Krista Cummings, consumer affairs supervisor at Bellisio Foods, at 855-871-9977.
