Hot Pockets Might Have Diseased Animal Meat In ThemS

Sad day for anyone who hoped never to know what exactly they were eating in their Hot Pockets ® Philly Steak & Cheese sandwich — according to the USDA it might be the meat of "diseased and unsound animals."

Specifically, the Hot Pockets Philly Steak & Cheese sandwiches (full list here) may be connected with a USDA recall on Friday of meat from the Rancho Feeding Corporation, which "processed diseased and unsound animals and carried out these activities without the benefit or full benefit of federal inspection."

Giant Supermarket and Nestlé have already recalled a "limited amount" of Hot Pockets products after discovering Rancho Feeding Corp. meat was used at a facility that makes Hot Pockets. Racho has recalled nearly 9 million pounds of meat since Friday.
