Bimbo Bakeries USA sent out a voluntary regional recall of certain bread products shipped to a few U.S. states, including Virginia.

The recall, put out Aug. 26, is a reaction to the possibility of glass fragments on some of the company shipped bread from a broken light bulb at one of the company’s bakeries.

Sara Lee, Kroger, Bimbo, Nature’s Harvest, Great Value and L’Oven Fresh brands have been recalled in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Alabama, Tennessee and West Virginia. The recalled breads were specified by the best by date, UPC code and bakery code 1658 of the potentially affected batches (see below).

The recall was announced after the company received three consumer reports of small glass pieces found on the outside of the bread, according to the release. So far, no injuries have been reported.

All recalled products are being removed from store shelves.
