WASHINGTON -- More than 760,000 pepperoni pizza Hot Pockets sold nationwide have been recalled by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture over possible glass contamination, the agency said.

The frozen 54 ounce packages of the product were made Nov. 13 through Nov. 16 and have a 14-month shelf life.

"The firm has received one report of a minor oral injury associated with consumption of this product. FSIS (Food Safety and Inspection Service) has received no additional reports of injury or illness from consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider," the USDA said in a statement Saturday.

Here are the details on the specific products covered by the recall:

The boxes also have the establishment number "EST. 7721A" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

No other Hot Pockets products are part of the recall.
