ALERT! More Than 200,000 Pounds Of These Ready To-Eat-Hot Dogs Have Metal Shards

Doctors advise you to quit giving your children hot dogs! Hot dogs are the favorite food of millions of people, especially in America where they are all around us and are even sold at sporting events and festivals.

Hot dogs are a great easy weeknight dinner, so it’s no wonder you’ve probably got a few packs stored in your fridge. But, if you’ve bought hot dogs recently, you’re going to need to check the packaging because more than 200,000 pounds worth of hot dogs is being recalled.

The following products, which were sold nationwide and produced by the Ohio-based John Morrell and Co., are being recalled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service:

  • 14-ounce sealed film packages containing Nathan’s Skinless 8 Beef Franks with a “Use By” date of Aug. 19, 2017
  • 16-ounce sealed film packages containing Curtis Beef Master Beef Franks with a “Use By” date of June 15, 2017

John Morrell & Co. notified the federal government of the issue on Friday, affecting 210,606 pounds of ready-to-eat hot dog products. The company did not say how the franks may have been contaminated with metal.

The New York Post notes the recall comes in advance of the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating contest in Coney Island on the 4th of July.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions or injury due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased the affected products are urged to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.

Memorial Day weekend is the perfect time to fire up the grill, but make sure you’re safe while doing it. From making sure you’re using hot dogs that are fit for eating to keeping the grill at least 10 feet from the house, there’s a whole list of safety precautions to keep in mind to make sure your summer barbecues run smoothly.
