If you've just reached for a late-morning snack stashed in your workplace's cupboards or drawers, do yourself a favor and check the packaging. Bimbo Bakeries USA Inc. have announced the recall of six kinds of mini-donuts they sell since "they may develop an uncharacteristic smell and become moldy," explains the OC Register. Mmm, tasty: Mold!

The recall covers three kinds of Entenmann's Pop 'Ems in four western states, including California, which "come in blue and white bags with dates between May 11 and June 6 printed in a circle on the upper right portion of the package":
- Powdered Pop ‘Ems, 10-ounce package, UPC Code 72030-01570
- Cinnamon Pop ‘Ems, 10-ounce package, UPC Code 72030-01985
- Rich Frosted Pop ‘Ems, 10.5-ounce package, UPC Code 72030-01571

The recall also includes three kinds of Bimbo’s Donitas mini-donuts in six states, including California, which "come in cellophane wrappers, with the same dates in the same locations on the packaging," as the Entenmann's Pop 'Ems :
- Sugared Donitas, 8 count, 3.6-ounce package, UPC Code 74323-07039
- Powdered Donitas, 8 count, 4.0-ounce package, UPC Code 74323-04976
- Chocolate Frosted Donitas, 8 count, 4.3-ounce package, UPC Code 74323-09964

Before you get sick, march those donuts back to the store and get a refund.
