Over 7 Million Pounds Of Hot Dogs With Possible Bone Fragments Recalled

Over 7 Million Pounds Of Hot Dogs With Possible Bone Fragments Recalled

The recall follows consumer complaints to the USDA on July 10 of extraneous material, specifically pieces of bone, in the product.

A NY meat processor is recalling more than 7 million pounds of hot dogs and sausages mostly under the Sabrett brand name after consumers complained about finding small pieces of bone in some of the products, the US Department of Agriculture said on Saturday (July 15).

The Marathon Enterprises Inc. beef and pork hot dog and sausage items were produced between March 17, 2017 and July 4, 2017.

Recalled products bear an establishment number "EST. 8854" inside the USDA mark of inspection, according to a press release.

One minor oral injury associated with the consumption of the contaminated product has been reported thus far.

The USDA instructs consumers to throw the recalled products away or return them to the place they purchased them. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact their doctor. Specifically, some of their food-sold under brand names like Sabrett, Papaya King and Western Beef-contained pieces of bone. A full list of recalled products is available on the FSIS website.

It hasn't been a very comforting year for hot dog eaters.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact John Terminello, Consumer Relations, at 1-800-SABRETT Monday thru Friday 8:30am to 5:15pm.

Sabrett hot dogs have been a fixture of the New York City area for decades, sold by street-corner vendors from pushcarts adorned with blue and yellow umbrellas.
