Bimbo Bakeries Recalls Thousands Of Bread Loaves Over Glass Shards

29 Aug

The company behind Sara Lee, Nature’s Harvest and several other brands is issuing a regional recall for 48,000 packages of bread products that may contain glass shards.

Bimbo Bakeries USA (yes, really) voluntarily issued the recall after receiving three reports from customers who found small pieces of glass outside of bread they purchased. The Pennsylvania-based business believes the likely culprit is a light bulb that broke at one of their production facilities, according to a press release.

 The recall concerns products in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. A complete list of the recalled products — which includes popular items like Sara Lee Whole Wheat and Honey Wheat breads — and the states in which each product is recalled can be found here.
