Nestle USA has issued a voluntary recall of two varieties of its Philly Steak and Cheese Hot Pockets because they may contain diseased meat that has already been recalled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The two brands, which were distributed nationwide, are Hot Pockets Philly Steak and Cheese in three different pack sizes and Hot Pockets Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese in the two pack box.
The exact batch codes can be found in the company's press release.
The USDA recalled more than 8.7 million million pounds of meat from Rancho Feeding Corporation because it "processed diseased and unsound animals and carried out these activities without the benefit or full benefit of federal inspection."
Nestle did not purchase meat directly from Ranchero, but has confirmed a small quantity of meat from Rancho was used at Nestle's Chatsworth, California production operation, a facility devoted entirely to Hot Pockets brand sandwiches.
No illnesses have been reported in relation to the recall.
Nestle is urging consumers to return the products to their place of purchase for a full refund or contact Nestle consumer services at 800-393-4057.
