Hot Pockets Recalls Philly Steak & Cheese With Tainted Meat

Wednesday, 19 Feb 2014 08:05 AM

Nestle issued a voluntary recall of its Philly Steak & Cheese Hot Pockets this week after learning that the product may have come into contact with diseased meat.

Last week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture ordered Northern California's Rancho Feeding Corporation to recall 8.7 million pounds of beef that was processed using diseased or unhealthy animals and then shipped to retail stores in four states.

No illnesses have yet been reported, but Rancho "processed diseased and unsound animals and carried out these activities without the benefit or full benefit of federal inspection. Thus, the products are adulterated, because they are unsound, unwholesome, or otherwise are unfit for human food and must be removed from commerce," the USDA said in a statement last week.

Now, Nestle is concerned that its Philly Steak & Cheese Hot Pockets may have come into contact with the Rancho meat.

"While Nestle did not purchase meat directly from Rancho, our procurement teams worked with our supply chain to understand whether any company in this chain may have purchased meat from Rancho Feeding at any time during 2013, the period of time covered by the Rancho Feeding recall," the company said Tuesday in a statement.

The following batch numbers are affected by the Hot Pockets recall:

Hot Pockets Philly Steak and Cheese in 8x9 oz: 3021544512, 3029544512, 3197544512, and 3240544512.

Hot Pockets Philly Steak and Cheese in 4x45 oz: 3022544513, 3191544512, 3224544512, 3254544512, and 3268544512.

Hot Pockets Philly Steak and Cheese in 4x22.5 oz: 3197544512 and 3240544512.

Hot Pockets Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese in 8x9 oz: 3211544512, 3248544512, and 3283544512.

Customers who purchased any of the recalled products should return them for a full refund.
