Pillsbury Recall: General Mills Says Cinnamon Rolls May Contain Plastic

A Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls recall was announced today by General Mills.

The company said that it was a “voluntary Class II” recall and that it only affected one flavor of its Cinnamon Rolls.

The refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls with Icing have been recalled by General Mills. Other varieties, like Pillsbury Flaky Cinnamon Rolls and Pillsbury Grands! Cinnamon Rolls, were not affected by the recall.

The company believes that some packages of cinnamon rolls may contain fragments of plastic.

General Mills wrote in a statement: “This action is being taken as a precaution because the dough may contain fragments from a broken piece of plastic on the production line. These products are sold in grocery stores nationally. No other Pillsbury dough products are being recalled.”

The company also said that only specific packages were being recalled.

Here’s a list of items involved in the Pillsbury recall.

  • Product: Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing – Better If Used By Date: 0OCT2013 and 31OCT2013
  • Product: Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing 2-pack – Better If Used By Date: 18OCT2013, 26OCT2013 and 31OCT2013
