Nestle Recalls Hot Pockets with Meat “Unfit for Human Food”

Image Credit: Wikimedia/Lenin McCarthy

The Philly Steak and Cheese Hot Pockets and the Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese varieties are the ones affected by this recall. The total amount of recalled cases is around 238,000. The site announcing the voluntary recall has since been taken down.

Nestlé’s recall is in response to a recall of meat by Rancho Feeding that also affected some Hot Pocket varieties.

According to Nestle, “Our teams at Nestle have reviewed our vendor records and have determined that one Nestle brand has been impacted by the Rancho meat recall.” They also added that this recall only affects meat used in a production facility in California.

Though the Hot Pocket recall is small, the Rancho meat recall is much larger, including some 8.7 million pounds of meat. It also is categorized as a Class I Recall, which according to the United States Department of Agriculture means “This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”

So what is it about this meat that makes it so dangerous and “unfit for human food”? The answer will likely turn your stomach; it comes from diseased animals.

One dead, 7 sickened from listeria outbreak linked to cheese

Roos Foods cheese

On Friday the CDC reported at least seven people have been sickened, and one died after eating “Hispanic-style cheese.”

The CDC says the outbreak has affected people only of Hispanic descent and living in California or Maryland.

Three babies were among those infected with listeria, while the other five were adults, including two women who had recently given birth.

The illnesses date back to between August 1 and November 27, 2013.

CNN reports, earlier this month, health inspectors in Virginia found listeria monocytogenes bacteria in a sample of Cuajada en Terron, or fresh cheese curd, on sale in clear, unlabeled plastic bags at a Mega Mart in Manassas. This was traced to Roos Foods, a company based in Kenton, Delaware. Virginia authorities said at that time there were no known sicknesses in the state tied to that cheese.
