A company that produces hot dogs, John Morrell and Co., has issued a recall for some of their hot dogs. The recall comes after the doscovery that the hot dogs may contain pieces of metal. This recall affects over 200,000 pounds of hot dogs.
There have been at least three people who have purchased the hotdogs that have found pieces of metal in them. As of now, no injuries have been reported to have been caused by the contaminated hot dogs.
The hot dogs included in the recall are:
- Curtis Beef Master Franks with a “Use By” date of 06/15/17

The hot dogs included in the recall have been sold all over the country. The packages of hotdogs that are being recalled also have the establishment number “EST. 296” printed on the package.
If you own these hot dogs, you should not eat them. Consumers are encouraged to either discard the hot dogs or return them to the store where they were purchased.
