The Cincinnati-based company that makes Nathan's and Curtis hot dogs is recalling more than 200,000 pounds of the products after receiving reports of metal being found in the packages.
John Morrell and Co. said it received three complaints and notified the federal government on Friday.
So far, there have been no confirmed reports of injuries.
According to a release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's website, the recall applies to the following products:
- 14 oz. sealed film packages containing “Nathan’s SKINLESS 8 BEEF FRANKS,” with a Use By date of Aug. 19, 2017
- 16 oz. sealed film packages containing “Curtis BEEF MASTER Beef Franks,” with a Use By date of June 15, 2017
The packages have "EST. 296" on the sides and were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
Here's a look at the packaging for the recalled items.
Consumers who have purchased either of these products are urged not to consume them.
The products should, instead, be thrown out or returned to the place of purchase.
This is a Class II recall, which the USDA describes as "a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product."
