Pillsbury Voluntarily Recalls Frozen Biscuits

Minneapolis, MN (SafetyAlerts) - The Pillsbury Company is voluntarily recalling a number of frozen biscuit products bearing specific production date codes because the frozen biscuits may contain plastic strands. These strands were found in a limited amount of product during the manufacturing process. Consumption of this product could result in a choking hazard. The company has notified the Food and Drug Administration of its plan to complete this voluntary recall. This voluntary recall does not include any Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits sold in the dairy case.

The affected product was distributed nationally to retail stores. 30,000 cases, containing products with the following UPC codes and production date codes, are being recalled.

UPC Code  18000-85515
Production Date Codes  F1 1062 08

                           F1 1062 19
                           F1 1062 23
                           F1 1062 25
