If you're aiming for a plastic-free cookout this summer, you might have to check in an unexpected place: your hamburger or hot dog buns.


Georgia-based Flowers Foods is recalling buns and other bakery products sold at major retailers including Walmart, Sam's Club, Dollar General and Target because they might be contaminated with small pieces of hard plastic, WSIL reported.

The company announced the recall Tuesday after discovering pieces of hard plastic in production equipment.

"Consumption of product may cause a choking hazard," Flowers Foods said.

However, there have been no reports of injury so far.

The recall impacts a number of brand names distributed in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.

Impacted stores include 7-Eleven, Walmart, Target, Piggly Wiggly, Publix, Ingles and IGA, while the recalled brands include Wonder, Great Value, Market Pantry, Nature's Own and Sunbeam, WebMD reported.

The affected products all have best-by dates of July 17 to 19.

Below is a full list of the impacted products. For UPC codes and lot numbers, check the Flowers website or the Food and Drug Administration.
