Sabrett recalls over 7 million pounds of hot dogs

ABC World News Tonight reported, “More than seven million pounds of Sabrett hot dogs” are being recalled because “they may contain bone fragments.” According to the report, “the packages were distributed nationwide and have the number 8854 inside the USDA inspection mark.” The AP reported “the recall affects beef and pork hot dogs and sausages produced on various dates between March 17 and July 4.” Newsday (NY)  reported “the affected items have sell-by dates ranging from June 19 to October 6.” Reuters reported the USDA issued a “Class 1 recall,” meaning it “considers the meat to be a health hazard that presents a ‘reasonable probability’ of causing ‘serious, adverse health consequences or death,’ if consumed, according to its statement.” Newsweek reported “only one person has received minor mouth injuries from the hot dogs,” and Sabrett’s website said the company “was voluntarily recalling its items out of an abundance of caution.”

A full list of recalled foods is on the FSIS website.
“Sabrett deeply regrets any concern or inconvenience this has caused its loyal customers,” the company said. “Sabrett is working closely with USDA to effectively communicate to its customers with regards to this recall and to assure those customers that the recalled products are no longer in stores.”
Sabrett says its products are sold at retail chains in 21 states and Washington, DC, with an especially strong presence in the Northeast.
The Sabrett brand will be familiar to people living in or visiting Manhattan, where street-corner vendors sell hot dogs under blue and yellow striped Sabrett umbrellas.
Sabrett says its hot dogs are sold at many arenas, concert venues and convention centers across the country, including New York’s Madison Square Garden.
People with questions about the recall can call Sabrett at 1-800-722-7388 on weekdays, the company said.
