Is this an attack by the French? Retaliation for the whole "Freedom Fries" debacle?

WTF does "foreign materials" mean?

Have the Chinese contaminated out frozen microwaveable convenience food-like products?

I was wondering the same thing? How can they tell the difference between "foreign materials" and what they normally put on them?

I think the pepperoni Hot Pockets are pretty good for a late night snack.

If you're going to cook them in the microwave, you absolutely have to use the reflective cardboard container to cook them in. Otherwise, they're soggy and uneven.

They did this a while ago too, only to Broccoli Lean Pockets or some shit...That's why no one heard about it besides people in grocery stores who had to pull the completely full shelves.
