RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A company is recalling Boston Market meals that might contain glass or hard plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.

The meals were made by a company in Jackson, Ohio and sent to grocery stores across the country.

The recall involves 173,376 pounds of frozen pork entrée products made from Dec. 7, 2018, to Feb. 15, 2019.

The recall, which was announced Saturday, was triggered after “complaints of glass or hard plastic extraneous material in the rib-shaped patty,” a USDA news release said.

The recall is the most serious among classifications with a “high” health risk, the news release said.

The products in the recall have “EST. 18297” on the end carton flap of the package

The specific recall applies to 14-oz. black cardboard box packages containing “Boston Market Home Style Meals Boneless pork rib-shaped patty with BBQ sauce & mashed potatoes” with “BEST BY:” dates of 12/07/2019 lot code 8341, 01/04/2020 lot code 9004, 01/24/2020 lot code 9024, or 02/15/2020 lot code 9046, represented on the label.
