Reports of injuries have led Conagra Brands to recall certain lots of frozen Birds Eye broccoli tots because of small rocks and metal fragments in the product.
“Conagra has received two reports to date of injury — dental damage — associated with the recalled product,” according to the company recall notice posted by the Food and Drug Administration. “Conagra Brands was made aware of this issue through calls from consumers.”
Conagra did not report where the product was distributed or what states consumers who reported injuries live in.
The 12-ounce bags of frozen, breaded broccoli tots have best-by dates through November 2022 so there is concern that consumers may still have the product in their home freezers. Consumers can use the following information to determine whether they have the broccoli tots on hand.
