ST. GEORGE ̵
The recall was announced by the manufacturer, Bellisio Foods of Jackson, Ohio, beginning to receive consumer complaints of glass or hard plastic in the product's ribbed patty. USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service was notified on Friday.
Although there have been no confirmed disease reports due to the consumption of the Ohio plant products to date, a statement by the USDA stated that this is considered a high risk recall.
The products were shipped to outlets nationwide as well as a defense facility in Tucson, Arizona.
The products that are the subject of recall are Bellisios frozen "Boston Market Home Style Meals Boneless Pork Ribs Shaped Patty With Grill Sauce and Mashed Potatoes" packed in 4 ounce black cardboard boxes with the following lot codes and "best if used by" dates:  Best if used by date December 7, 2019 with lot code 8341.
The products have establishment number 18297 on the final cardboard flap of the packages.
Federal officials urge consumers to check their homes for frozen meals. The product should not be consumed. Items must either be thrown or returned to the point of purchase, along with other items that have the same lot number that can be stored in the freezer.
This is not the first recall of the Ohio-based company. In December 2017, the US Food and Drug Administration announced the company was recalling "Michelina's Fettuccine Alfredo" due to possible black black soy found in the product.
Food Safety and Inspection Service routinely performs recall efficiency checks to verify that companies inform their customers of recalls and that precautions have been taken to ensure that the product is no longer available to consumers.
