A whopping 7 million pounds of hot dogs were just recalled from the popular brand Sabrett. The beef and pork hot dogs in question, along with other sausage products, may be contaminated with small pieces of bone and cartilage, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
So far, the agency has received one report of a minor mouth injury from someone who ate the hot dogs in question. Sabrett said in a statement on its website that “an equipment installation issue” was to blame for the mistake, and that said issue was immediately addressed after the problem was first discovered. The company added that the recalled products are no longer being sold in stores.
That being said, if you have hot dogs in your fridge, you should check them out to see if they fit the description of the recalled products:
