Select boxes of Cheese Nips are being recalled because they may contain small plastic pieces.
Mondelēz Global LLC, the parent company of Nabisco, announced it is voluntary recalling 11-ounce boxes of the cheese crackers “due to the potential presence of small food-grade yellow plastic pieces,” according to a notice posted on the Food and Drug Administration’s website Wednesday.
“The company became aware of this issue when yellow plastic pieces were noticed on the manufacturing equipment,” the recall notice states, noting the pieces came from a dough scraper that was incorporated into the production process of a small amount of product.”
