Probably many Americans and Canadians until now are still glued on their TV to check the schedule for the live simulcast of USA vs Canada Hockey matchup on Friday. While some health conscious individuals are actively monitoring the food markets for advisory regarding product recalls as it is now very common. And the recent one is the recall by Nestle in one of their products Hot Pockets over substandard beef concerns, according to reports.
It has been reported that Nestle has voluntarily recalled two varieties of their Hot Pockets namely, Philly Steak and Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese. It is part of a larger beef recall that the company believes that the meat is deemed unfit for human consumption which was processed for sale. Nestle announced that the products recalled may have been affected by a meat recall by Rancho Feeding Corp. that was announced last week. They have been recalling more than 8.7 million pounds of beef products after regulators said that it processed diseased and unhealthy animals without a full inspection.
So if you are a regular customer of the above mentioned products then it is better to examine it and perhaps return the product where you bought it considering that the USDA also says that the products were unfit for human consumption. Nestle also revealed that a small quantity of the mentioned meat was used at their California production facility that makes the recalled Hot Pockets. The good thing though is that, no illnesses so far have been reported that is related to the recalled Nestle products.
