Nestle recalls Hot Pockets in wake of massive beef recall
By Jim Hagerty
A massive meat recall has prompted Nestle to recall two of its Hot Pockets products.
According to a news release, the company is recalling an unspecified number or Croissant Crust Philly Steak and regular Philly Steak Hot Pockets. The measure is precautionary as the products may he been affected by last week’s meat recall by Rancho Feeding Corp.
Rancho recalled 8.7 million pounds of ground beef and veal after inspectors accused the company of processing diseased animals. According to a release from the USDA, the meat in question was not fit for human consumption.
The recall included a year’s worth of production, affecting stores in Alabama, California, Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas and Washington state.
“The USDA’s Office of the Inspector General is conducting an ongoing investigation into Rancho Feeding Corporation,” a statement from the USDA said. “The plant is currently shut down and the FSIS Administrator has directed an immediate and thorough examination of the firm’s practices, procedures and management.”
No illnesses have been reported.
