If you recently picked up the Philly Steak and Cheese variety of Hot Pockets, you might want to toss them. They’re part of a huge beef recall that started this month from meat produced by California-based Rancho Feeding Corporation.

The recall affects nearly 9 million points of beef — a year’s worth — that may have come from “diseased and unsound” livestock that didn’t get full federal inspections. It wasn’t big news here because that meat wasn’t shipped to Louisiana. The Hot Pocket recall, however, is nationwide.

Nestle, the company that produces Hot Pockets, said their company didn’t use Rancho’s meat, but the meat they did used was also processed at the same facility as Rancho’s. They’re doing a recall as a precaution. Nestle recalled the following batches of Hot Pockets:

  • Hot Pockets Philly Steak and Cheese, 8×9 oz. – UPC CODE 43695 07107 8, Batch Nos. 3021544512, 3029544512, 3197544512 and 3240544512.
  • Hot Pockets Philly Steak and Cheese, 4×45 oz. — UPC CODE 43695 07520 5, Batch Nos. 3022544513, 3191544512, 3224544512, 3254544512 and 3268544512.
  • Hot Pockets Philly Steak and Cheese, 4×22.5 oz. — UPC CODE 43695 15990 5, Batch Nos. 3197544512 and 3240544512.
  • Hot Pockets Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese, 8×9 oz. — UPC CODE 43695 05634 1, Batch Nos. 3211544512, 3248544512 and 3283544512.

No illnesses have yet been linked to the tainted beef or to Hot Pockets. You can get a refund by returning the products to the place you bought them. You can also call Nestle’s customer service line at 1-800-392-4057.
