Bone fragments possibly lurking in hot dogs and sausages led to the recall of almost 7.2 million pounds of products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Saturday.
Only one person has received minor mouth injuries from the hot dogs, but Sabrett wrote on its website it was voluntarily recalling its items out of an abundance of caution.
The impacted products were dated from March 17, 2017, through July 4, 2017, bear establishment number "EST". You can find a complete list here.
Customers who already purchased the items are encouraged to throw them away, and contact Sabrett to receive a full refund. "At that time, staff immediately investigated and identified an issue that could have allowed this to occur, and an equipment installation issue was quickly addressed".
Bacteria-infected mosquitoes are coming to Fresno - but it's a good thing!
Earlier this year, a woman in Fresno tested positive with Zika, through sexual contact with a partner who had been travelling. Verily's Debug Project is the only plausible method to get rid of the potential threat by combating Zika-carrying mosquitos.
The Marathon Enterprises recall also covers hot dogs and salami sold to restaurants and other food services under the Sabrett, Nathan's Private Label and Katz's Delicatessen labels.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify theircustomers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. Complaints stated that extraneous material, specifically pieces of bone, were found within the product.
Consumers with questions about the recall can call John Terminello, consumer relations, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.to 5:15 p.m., at 1-800-SABRETT.
Sabrett, which began making hot dogs in 1926, has two manufacturing plants and a distribution center in the Bronx.
