Is your freezer stuffed with Hot Pockets? Congrats on still being single!
Also, you might want to check the codes on the box because approximately 762,615 pounds of Hot Pockets are stuffed with more than just processed meats and questionable cheese concoctions.
Mt, Sterling, KY-based Nestlé Prepared Foods is recalling approximately 762,615 pounds of not-ready-to-eat (NRTE) pepperoni hot pockets product that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically, pieces of glass and hard plastic, USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reports.
The frozen NRTE pepperoni hot pockets product was produced from Nov. 13, 2020, through Nov. 16, 2020. The product has a shelf life of 14 months.
Fourteen months?!? I’ve had Hot Pockets in my fridge since the winter of 2007. How would a person even be sober enough to know if a Hot Pocket tasted bad?
The products in question for this Hot Pockets recall are the Premium Pepperoni Made With Pork and Chicken & Beef Pizza with Garlic Buttery Crust. Both options sound as though glass and hard plastic might improve the taste.

Nestle was alerted to the issued when they received “four consumer complaints of extraneous material in the pepperoni hot pocket product” and one minor oral injury was reported.
The Food Safety and Inspection Service is urging any unlucky Hot Pockets owners to either throw the food away or return the packages to the place of purchase.
