The product subject to recall bears establishment number "EST. 7721A" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The frozen NRTE pepperoni hot pockets product was produced from November 13, 2020 through November 16, 2020, and has a shelf life of 14 months. The items were shipped to retail locations across the United States.

The recall was initiated after the company received four consumer complaints of extraneous material in the pepperoni hot pocket product. Nestle also received one report of a minor oral injury associated with consumption of the recalled product.

Consumers are urged to throw away the affected products or return to the place of purchase.
