Entenmann’s recalls Little Bite snacks for plastic contamination

WASHINGTON — Bimbo Bakeries — which makes the packaged Entenmann’s Little Bites snacks — has issued a mini-muffin recall.

The company said Wednesday it’s recalling an unspecified number of Little Bites fudge brownies, chocolate chip muffins and variety packs that might contain “small pieces of plastic.”

The recall notice warned of a “choking and/or cutting hazard.”

It affects brownies and chocolate chip muffin packages with a “best by” date of Oct. 8, and variety packs with a “best by” date of Sept. 24. All of the affected products were shipped to retailers in at least 30 states within the past two weeks.

Bimbo Bakeries said it received complaints from consumers who found plastic in the product, and an injury was reported. Bimbo Bakeries said it determined the problem stems from a “manufacturing failure at a contract manufacturer’s bakery in Illinois.”

A spokesman for Bimbo Bakeries could not immediately provide additional details on how the plastic got in the production process.

The company is offering full refunds to customers who return a recalled box to its place of purchase. Consumers can get more information by calling 1-800-984-0989.
