Hot dogs recalled due to possible metal contamination

(WPTA21) — Vienna Beef is recalling more than 2,000 pounds of frankfurters over concerns it may be contaminated with metal fragments.

The recall involves beef frank links produced on May 2. The products were shipped to food service locations in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 10-lb. cases containing “SKINLESS BEEF FRANKFURTERS 6” 8’s 10#” with case code 013180 and package code 9122 represented on the label.
  • 10-lb. cases containing “SKINLESS BEEF FRANKFURTERS 6” 11’s 10#” with case code 013312 and package code 9122 or 9123 represented on the label.
  • 10-lb. cases containing “SKINLESS BEEF FRANKFURTERS 7” 9’s 10#” with case code 013490 and package code 9122 or 9123 represented on the label.

While there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of the products, the United States Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) says there is a high health risk associated with the recall.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in food service refrigerators or freezers. They should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Anyone with questions about the recall should contact Tom McGlade, VP of Marketing, Vienna Beef Ltd., at (773) 435-2204.
