Life Imitates Art in 'Shards O' Glass' Recall

Shards I found the "Shards O' Glass" commercials (see one below, and many more here) from the Truth anti-tobacco campaign to be pretty amusing and effective.

But I didn't anticipate that life would imitate art so quickly, with a real company issuing a real recall because its food products contain ... real shards o' glass! Via the Class Action Central blog, I learned that Pictsweet Co., which distributes frozen vegetables, is now recalling 24,000 pounds of different food products because it has discovered shards o' glass in the food. The recalled vegetables were distributed to Kroger stores in the southeastern U.S. and Walmart stores throughout the U.S., the company stated in a press release.  No injuries have been reported to date.

The recalled items include Kroger 12-ounce Green Peas, Kroger 12-ounce Peas and Carrots,
Great Value 12-ounce Steamable Sweet Peas and Great Value 12-ounce Steamable Mixed Vegetables.
