    Hi,
    Just to let you know, I did not have any idea that there
    was a recall on the “Hot Pockets.” Last Thursday, I
    heated a “Lean Pocket” either garlic and white pizza or
    the spinach. In order to have more space in my freezer,
    I removed the pockets from the box after purchasing thus
    making me not really knowing which one I heated in the microwave. What happened is the following: I took the
    pocket out of the cardboard wrapper I heated it in and
    took a bite. A white thing that looked like stiff piece dental floss poked out. I looked at it and thought it might be plastic, but talked myself out of it because if I dwelled on it, I would never purchase “Lean Pockets” again. At this point I had not heard of any recall. Saturday night, I was watching the show Chelsey Lately on the E channel and she made a joke at the end of her show about Nestle recalling Hot Pockets for having plastic pieces in them. I realized then that the thing I pulled out of my Lean Pocket was most likely a plastic piece. I see that you have not recalled any of the Lean Pockets and wanted to tell you what happened to me. Like I just said….it was like a hard or stiff piece of dental floss about as long as the pocket. I am not looking for restitution, just letting you know in case this is something like the recall. Thank you for listening.
