Nestlé announced Tuesday that it was voluntarily recalling two of its Hot Pockets products following a wider meat recall.
The food maker said Tuesday that it is recalling an unspecified number of “Philly Steak” and its “Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese” Hot Pockets in certain sizes.
Nestle says the products may have been affected by a meat recall by Rancho Feeding Corp. that was announced last week.
Rancho is recalling more than 8.7 million pounds of beef products after regulators said that it processed DISEASED and unhealthy animals without a full inspection. The USDA says the products were unfit for human consumption.
No illnesses have been reported…so far.
According to Nestlé, consumers should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund or contact Nestlé consumer services at 800-392-4057.
In August 2012, Central Valley Meat was closed while the USDA investigated what it called “disturbing evidence of inhumane treatment of cattle” at the supplier following its receipt of a video from an animal welfare group.
However, the USDA said at the time the video found nothing that would compromise food safety.
I’m not a fan of Hot Pockets anyway!
Does this affect you?
