Philly Steak and Cheese Hot Pockets Recalled; Meat from ‘Diseased and Unsound’ Animals
SOLON, Ohio (Feb. 19, 2014 – CNN) — Nestlé USA has issued a recall of two varieties of Philly Steak and Cheese Hot Pockets because they may contain meat that has already been recalled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The USDA recalled more than 8.7 million pounds of meat from the Rancho Feeding Corporation because it “processed diseased and unsound animals and carried out these activities without the benefit or full benefit of federal inspection.” [Click here for that original recall]
