General Mills has issued a voluntary recall on refrigerated Pillsbury iced cinnamon rolls due to risk of plastic contamination.

The US food major has specifically recalled 8-count single and double packages of the product.

“This action is being taken as a precaution because the dough may contain fragments from a broken piece of plastic on the production line,”​ General Mills said in its statement.

No other flavors or varieties of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls or dough products are affected and the recall does not include Pillsbury Flaky Cinnamon Rolls or Pillsbury Grands! Cinnamon Rolls, it added.

The recall affects single packs with ‘better if used date’ of 30 Oct 2013 and 31 October 2013 and double packs with 18, 26 and 31 October 2013 dates.
