When you’re looking for that “crispy, crunchy, tender, flaky crust”, you know you’ve found it with a quality product like Hot Pockets… or did you?

If you’ve consumed your weight (and who wouldn’t?) in Hot Pockets’ “Philly Steak and Cheese” and “Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese” then there’s some bad news for you: the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that those particular products contained “diseased and unsound animals.”

An estimated 238,000 cases of Hot Pockets were recalled by Nestlé in a company press release on Tuesday.

The products were part of a larger meat recall issued by Rancho Feeding Corp. last week of 8,742,700 pounds of beef product; that’s roughly 6600 large bred cows.

The tainted meat spread to 1,000 California retailers as well as other companies in Alabama, Florida, Oregon, Mississippi, New Mexico, and Washington.

Having second thoughts about sinking your teeth in those hot juicy pockets of wonder?

Unless autopsy reports are still in progress, no illnesses have been reported.

Just listen to Snoop Dogg and don’t think about it:

If you still haven’t microwaved your greasy snacks or are feeling the after effects of a USDA Class 1 recall, you can contact Nestle Consumer Services for a refund at 1-800-392-4057(image)1-800-392-4057.

Meanwhile over at Hot Pockets’ Facebook Page, PR is regurgitating responses of possible epidemics of regurgitation:
