The Philly Steak and Cheese Hot Pockets brand recall by Nestle took place after news spread of spoilt meat processed by the Rancho Feeding Corporation. The snacks contain meat products from the beef processing plant. It had skimped on government food inspection during the past two years and so the meat was contaminated and unfit for human consumption.
Two of the Hot Pockets brand of Philly Steak and Cheese as well as another one in a unique Croissant variety got hurriedly pulled off the shelves. The reason was that the Rancho Feeding Company had committed a booboo.
A whole batch of its processed meat hadn’t undergone inspection by the proper authorities. And the result was that it was spoilt and not worthy of being consumed by any human agency. The Hot Pockets recall has caused turmoil in many companies which employ the processed meat in their respective products.
The Hot Pockets brands is delicious and the choice of many celebrities including Snoop Dogg. It was a good thing that out of the many different versions of Philly Steaks with Cheese, only two were recalled. The fact that no signs of disease of illness have been noted in the population is good news indeed.
The unpalatable meat will be disposed of in a befitting manner so that no sickness is spread among humans. The Rancho Feeding Corporation is based in California. Close to nine million pounds of meat is being recalled by the corporation after it escaped the eyes of the inspection authorities.
This includes in its purview: beef heads, oxtail, cheeks, lips, tripe, liver, tongue, veal cuts and heart. The health hazard situation created by unexamined meat that may be contaminated is not as serious as it appears as first sight.
Nevertheless one has to be careful in this day and age when the slightest deviation from the standards of health and hygiene may cause outbreaks of ailments and maladies among the general population.
