Nestlé USA announced on Feb. 18 that it was voluntarily recalling select varieties of its HOT POCKETS® frozen sandwiches that were found to have been made using recalled meat products from Rancho Feeding Corporation. The recall affects only certain packages of Philly Steak and Cheese and Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese. Nestlé has determined that a small quantity of recalled meats was used at the company's Chatsworth, California production operation, which makes HOT POCKETS® exclusively.

The meat recall from Rancho Feeding Corporation took place on Feb. 14. The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the Department of Agriculture found that 8,742,700 pounds of meat processed by the Petaluma, Cal. company was from "diseased and unsound animals." The meat had not been fully inspected by the FSIS before it was shipped.

This was the second meat recall for Rancho Feeding this year. On Jan. 13, the company recalled 41,683 pounds of various beef products that had not been fully inspected. On Jan. 16, an additional 420 pounds of beef products were added to the recall list.

The Nestlé HOT POCKETS® packages that have been recalled can be found at this link. Customers who have purchased any of the recalled products should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. They may also call Nestlé Consumer Services at (800) 392-4057. At this point, the Department of Agriculture has received no reports of any illnesses related to the Rancho Feeding recalled beef.
