Nearly 86 tons of Boston Market frozen meals are being recalled for an extremely scary reason. The meals are being recalled because they could contain fragments of glass or hard plastic, reported AOL.

The fast-food chain’s boneless pork rib patties can be found in Boston Market Home Style Meals. They are labeled as Boneless Pork Rib Shaped Patty with BBQ Sauce & Mashed Potatoes.

This is a very serious recall. According to a statement from the USDA, the recall is being labeled as Class I, which means, “there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”

The USDA was notified on Friday following “consumer complaints of glass or hard plastic extraneous material in the rib-shaped patty.” According to the FDA, no one seems to have been hurt as a result of consumption thus far—praise be to God.

However, the FDA did say that “anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.”

A Boston Market spokesperson elaborated, “The recall does not involve any products that are sold in Boston Market restaurants.”

On the label, the frozen meals have "best buy" dates of December 7, 2019 (lot code 8341); January 4, 2020 (lot code 9004), January 24, 2020 (lot code 9024) or February 15, 2020 (lot code 9046). The meals subject to recall also have "EST. 18297" stamped on the end carton flap of the package.
