Hostess recalls hamburger and hotdog buns over salmonella and listeria concerns

Hostess Soft White Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns have been recalled by the manufacturer and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration due to salmonella and listeria concerns. All told, nearly 50 varieties are being recalled.

Hostess was alerted to the issue after their co-manufacturer Best Harvest Bakeries had a concern during their environmental monitoring. The recalled buns were distributed to retailers throughout the United States.

We’ve written about listeria recalls, and we’ve written about salmonella recalls. It’s not often though that a company issues a recall due to salmonella and listeria concerns. Both salmonella and listeria usually are not of great concern for young and healthy adults. Children, the elderly, pregnant women, and those with weakened immune systems are both at greater risk of contracting salmonella and listeria.

A complete list of the recalled buns can be found at the link below. At this time, no other Hostess buns are being recalled. You should return or discard any recalled Hostess hamburger or hot dog buns you may have purchased.
