Over 7 millions pounds of hot dogs recalled after bone fragments found

More than seven million pounds of Sabrett hot dogs and sausages are being recalled after bone fragments and pieces of cartilage were discovered in some of the products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Saturday.

That was the only reported incidence of injury or illness connected with the products, produced by Marathon Enterprises Inc.'s meat-processing plant in New York's Bronx borough.

Beef and pork hot dog and sausage items with the establishment number "EST". You can find a complete list here.

The recall includes Sabrett's brand of hot dog products, though other local and regional brands may be affected, according to the recall notice.

"Staff immediately investigated and identified an issue that could have allowed this to occur, and an equipment installation issue was quickly addressed", it added.

The FSIS advises anyone with these products to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase. Also sold institutionally: Katz's Delicatessen salami and Nathan's Private Label. "Sabrett deeply regrets any concern or inconvenience this has caused its loyal customers".

The family-owned company says they're working closely with the USDA to communicate to its customers and "assure those customers that the recalled products are no longer in stores". Specifically, some of their food-sold under brand names like Sabrett, Papaya King and Western Beef-contained pieces of bone.
