Pillsbury Cinnamon Roll Recall Issued Due to Plastic Contamination

Due to concerns over potential contamination with small plastic fragments, a recall has been issued for certain Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls that could pose a potential choking hazard for consumers.  

A Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing recall was announced by the FDA on September 6, after the manufacturer, General Mills, determined that the rolls could potentially contain unknown sizes of plastic fragments due to a broken piece of equipment on the production line.

Although there have been no illnesses or injuries reported in connection with the cinnamon roll recall, small plastic pieces in the food could cause consumers to choke or suffer lacerations if they eat the product without discovering the foreign objects.

The recall affects eight-count Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing with “Better If Used” dates of 30OCT2013 and 31OCT2013, and Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing 2-packs with “Better If Used” dates of 18OCT2013, 26OCT2013, and 31OCT2013. General Mills announced in a press release that only these products have come in contact with the broken piece of plastic on the production line and that no other products are affected.

The recalled cinnamon rolls were manufactured by General Mills of Minneapolis, Minnesota and packaged in eight-count single and double packages where they were distributed nationwide to various grocery stores.

The company is urging consumers with recalled cinnamon rolls to stop consuming them immediately and contact General Mills at 1-800-775-4777 to receive a replacement.
