J&J Snack Foods Handhelds Corp. warns customers that nearly 60,000 pounds of stuffed sandwich products may be contaminated with plastic. 

As per a news release from the Food Safety and Inspection Service, the stuffed sandwiches with "AUG12 2020" and "AUG 13 2020" labels were produced on February 19 and 20. 

Other labels which may reportedly contain plastic particles include "Bremer CLASSIC PEPPERONI PIZZA Hot Stuffed Sandwiches" and "Bremer CLASSIC HAM & CHEESE Hot Stuffed Sandwiches."


Customers are urged not to eat the products and either throw the contaminated batches away or return it to the place of purchase. 

The claim was investigated when the manufacturer received complaints from customers. However, the FSIS confirmed no injuries were reported. 

Anyone concerned about coming into contact with the contaminated products should contact a health care provider as soon as possible.

For any related queries or concerns, Kristyn Castellante, the Customer Relations Coordinator, can be reached on 856-532-6611.

Earlier this week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture recalled nearly 5,000 pounds of beef due to a possible E. coli contamination.
