According to the FDA, small pieces of hard plastic may have been introduced during production which may pose a choking hazard.

They were sold at stores including Aldi, Dollar General, Sam's Club, Target, and Walmart.

The products were sold under brand names including 7-Eleven, Great Value, Home Pride, IGA, Publix and Wonder. A full list of recalled buns can be viewed here.

The products being recalled were distributed to retail customers under a variety of brand names and distributed in OH and seventeen other states. Front Row Advisors LLC's holdings in Flowers Foods were worth $1,641,000 as of its most recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

If you do, consumers are told to discard the buns or return them to the store for a full refund.

The company initiated the recall after discovering small pieces of hard plastic in production equipment. The company says there have been no reports of injuries or illnesses.
