As we were checking out at Kroger last night, the self-check speaker said that there was an important message on our receipt. When we got to the car, I looked at it, and it said that the Kroger brand of green peas had been recalled.
The Pictsweet Company issued a voluntary recall on Friday after learning that some of the packages could contain possible glass fragments. These products were distributed to Kroger stores in the South East United States and Wal-Mart stores across the country.
The recall includes these products.

It turns out that I did in fact have a couple of bags in my freezer, one of which had already been opened. I will be heading back to Kroger this week to return them.
