Nestlé recalls Hot Pockets that may contain “diseased and unsound” meat

Hot pocket recall

There has been a Hot Pocket recall that has been made by Nestlé. The recall is a is voluntarily recalling the Hot Pockets as the meat that could have been used in the Hot Pockets and Rancho Feeding Corporation, which is already recalling nearly 9 million pounds of its beef products, including beef lips, feet, cheeks and liver. So for safety reasons Nestle is recalling the Hot Pockets. There has been no reports of anyone getting sick from the product.

The voluntary recall is limited to these two products, which were distributed nationwide. No other batches, sizes, including multi-packs, or varieties of Hot Pockets® brand products are affected by this recall. The reason is due to the recall announced last week by Rancho Feeding Corporation which affects many companies. Our teams at Nestlé have reviewed our vendor records and have determined that one Nestlé brand has been impacted by the Rancho meat recall.

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, the period of time covered by the Rancho Feeding recall.
