This week, Nestlé recalled Philly Steak and Cheese and Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese of their Hot Pockets in various sizes, as they possibly contained meat from "diseased and unsound animals."
In a statement, Nestlé called it a "voluntary recall" and noted that, "No other batches, sizes, including multi-packs, or varieties of HOT POCKETS® brand products are affected by this recall."
The Hot Pockets recall is part of a bigger meat recall by Rancho Feeding Corporation, who were forced to recall 8.7 million pounds of beef that the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service discovered was never federally inspected and came from the "diseased" animal.
The FSIS calls the products unfit for human food." (They're talking about products made from this specific meat, not all Hot Pockets.)
In their statement, Nestlé argues that the Rancho recall "affects many companies" and says, "While Nestlé did not purchase meat directly from Rancho, our procurement teams worked with our supply chain to understand whether any company in this chain may have purchased meat from Rancho Feeding at any time during 2013."
