For those who have planned family reunions or camping trips in the last few weeks of summer, there is a recent hamburger and hot dog buns recall that you should be aware of. The nationwide recall of these buns has led stores across the United States to withdraw the product due to a possible link to bacteria.
Hostess Brands, LLC., Has issued a voluntary recall of its white hamburger and hot dog buns over fears of a possible link with Listeria and Salmonella. The products are sold in markets across the country. The recall announcement was shared on the U.S. Food & Drug Administration website on Monday, August 16.
No reports of product-related illness in the United States have been announced to date. The FDA also shared all information related to the reported products on its website, including best purchase dates, lot numbers, item UPC codes, and packaging information.
