If you’re headed to a barbecue any time soon, you may want to think twice before adding a bun to your hot dog or hamburger. Flowers Foods Inc. voluntarily recalled buns, as well as other bakery products, due to the potential of small pieces of hard plastic that may have been introduced during production. The products are being flagged for a potential choking hazard. The buns were distributed in 18 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.

The items were sold at retailers including Walmart, Aldi, Publix and Piggly Wiggly and include:
