Marathon Enterprises announced the recall of more than 7 million pounds of hot dogs because it may contain bone pieces.
USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service stated that a person who ate one of the hot dogs had “a minor oral injury”.
The brands affected are: Sabrett, Western Beef, Stew Leonard’s, 1906 Premium, Papaya King, and Sabert Exclusively for Wind Mill natural casing hot dogs, Nathan’s Private Label and Katz’s Delicatessen.
The recall affects beef and pork hot dogs and sausages made on a variety of dates between March 17 and July 4.
The food-safety agency says the products subject to recall are stamped “EST. 8854” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
