A Georgia-based food company recalled hamburger and hot dog buns sold at stores in several states, including in Alabama. That prompted the voluntary recall.

It remains unclear how the plastic got into the production equipment and the type of plastic that was found.

Health officials say no one has reported any injuries or illnesses yet from consuming the buns or rolls.

Various brand names of the products include Clover Valley, Great Value, Laura Lynn, Nature's Own, Piggly Wiggly, Publix, Food Depot, Sunbeam and Wonder.

Consuming the product could be a choking hazard.

The products have best-by dates ranging from July 17, 2019, to July 19, 2019.

They were sold at stores including Aldi, Dollar General, Sam's Club, Target, and Walmart.

People are advised not to eat the buns but either throw them out or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.

Consumers with questions about the recall can call Flowers Foods' Consumer Relations Center at 1-866-245-8921, Monday through Friday from 8 5 p.m. EST or by email by visiting The buns are being recalled for possible plastic contamination.
