Bellisio Foods has issued a recall of Boston Market items after customers reported finding foreign matter in the products.

The affected product is a 14-ounce boxed package labeled “Boston Market Home Style Meals Boneless Pork Rib Shaped Patty with BBQ Sauce and Mashed Potatoes.” A press release by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, Bellisio Foods is recalling nearly 300,000 pounds of the frozen entree item.

The recall, which was designated as “Class II,” is described as “a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product.” The company was alerted to the issue after customers complained of discovering plastic and glass fragments in their food though no injuries have been reported.
