Koffee Kup Bakery has voluntarily recalled approximately 99,000 packages of its bread products due to the possibility that there may be clear plastic pieces in some products.

The affected bread and rolls are identified by the use-by dates 9/30/16, 10/1/16, 10/2/16, or 10/3/16, which are printed on the closure tags of each package.

Consumers can see the full list of recalled bread and rolls on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) release.

The recalled products were shipped to U.S. retailers in the states of Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia.

Koffee Kup discovered the presence of a foreign object in its bread and roll production through routine screening. The company ceased production immediately and upon further investigation, discovered that a small piece of clear plastic entered the stream of production and broke apart during the production process, thus creating a hard-material choking hazard.

The company elected to commence an immediate product recall of all products potentially contaminated by the plastic that entered the production stream.

No injuries have been reported, to date.

Distributors, drivers and retailers have been notified of the recall and have been directed to remove all potentially-affected products from stores, but some products may already have been purchased by consumers.

Customers who purchased any of the recalled items should not eat them, but return it to the store where it was purchased for an exchange or a full refund.
