The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Saturday that Bellisio Foods is recalling about 173,376 pounds of frozen pork entree products that may be contaminated with pieces of glass or hard plastic.

The frozen, not ready-to-eat boneless pork rib patties were produced on various dates from Dec. 7, 2018, to Feb. 15. The 14-ounce black, cardboard box packages contain “Boston Market Home Style Meals” boneless pork rib shaped-patty with barbecue sauce and mashed potatoes.
