Millions of pounds of hot dogs recalled in US

Millions of pounds of hot dogs recalled in US

Most of these products are sold under the Sabrett brand and are produced by Marathon Enterprises Inc.'s meat-processing plant in New York's Bronx borough, as reported by AOL News.

The alarm was raised after reports of bone pieces in the products started flooding the watchdog's Consumer Complaint Monitoring System (CCMS), beginning July 10. The USDA said one person sustained a minor mouth injury while eating one of the products.

Several varieties of Sabrett hot dogs and sausages have been recalled due to possible bone fragments.

Customers who have purchased the affected products are urged to throw them away.

The recall affects beef and pork hot dogs and sausages mostly under the Sabrett brand name.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number "EST". The products were distributed and sold across the U.S.to both retailers and institutions.

The FSIS tells consumers they should see their healthcare provider if they have an injury or illness concern. When available, the retail distribution list (s) will be posted on the FSIS website at http://www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Questions about the recall can be directed to John Terminello, Consumer Relations, at 1-800-SABRETT 8:30 a.m. -5:15 p.m. Monday through Friday.
