Do the Hot Pockets I Just Fed My Kids Have Diseased Meat In Them?

Hot Pockets Philly Steak & Cheese sandwiches might be connected with a USDA recall of 8.7 million pounds of beef.

Screen grab.
Screen grab.
More than 8.7 million pounds of beef was recalled because diseased and unhealthy animals were used and without a complete federal inspection, the Huffington Post reported.

Rancho Feeding Company in Petaluma, Calif. recalled the beef because it processed diseased and unhealthy animals without a full federal inspection, the Food Safety and Inspection Service said. 

The meat was processed by Rancho Feeding Corp. between Jan. 1 2013 and Jan. 7 2014 and shipped to California, Florida and Illinois. 

Giant Food, LLC, stopped sales of several products as a result of the recall, including the Hot Pockets Philly Steak & Cheese.

The beef products all have the "EST. 527" in the USDA mark of inspection and a case code ending in 3 or 4, CNN reported.

Last month the company recalled more than 40,000 pounds of meat products produced on Jan. 8 that also didn't undergo a full inspection, the Huffington Post story said.

Truth in advertising. I like it. Americans are sick of being lied too. Someone should contact Nestle and let them know these great ideas. We are like, marketing geniuses....Let's get paid for this $hit.

@Zoot: I gagged. WTH. Hate having a visual "make a picture" brain. Sick. YOU WIN.... >9000 to you.
Jordan S. Zoot February 21, 2014 at 04:00 PM
Actually I can't wait to see the commercial for Horse Cum Pockets watching the bite into the thing and seeing the slime dribbling out....we could probably make maggots gag.

This is probably gonna really make some people sad face because they really LIKE "Hot Pockets" but WTH? Aren't there like regulations/check points and whatnot to prevent this sort thing? What is this China or something? Remember when they found like 80% newspaper or crap in the hot dogs buns? I don't buy all that frozen crap so yea me, but I do eat meat....Moving to New Zealand and hunting and fishing my own food is starting to look pretty good. ( I have the BEST MAGGOT STORY EVER.)

Bryan Harz February 22, 2014 at 10:27 AM
Just make it quick and painless Steven...and giving us Hot Pockets to eat would be equally effective :-)
rubberband February 22, 2014 at 10:43 AM

Bryan Harz February 22, 2014 at 07:16 PM
Those are some awesomely non-related remarks all wrapped up in a neat little paragraph. I have no idea what any of that means. But kudos to you for speakin' yer mind. F the liberals. F the conservatives. F everybody!!
southernbelle February 22, 2014 at 09:08 PM
I think Stevie was hitting the Jack again last night!! oh my! RB, I used to love Biscuits and gravy--but when a lady starts gettin up in age, she needs to watch her figure…especially when she has her such a good looking husband. I need to keep him interested! *wink* Although--I do cook him up some chick'n & dumpln's from time to time, lots a BBQ, best Jambalaya y'all ever had, and few other of momma's passed down recipes. provided I can use organic, non GMO type foods. I don't want my family keelin' over too quick, ya hear.
usmcboi February 22, 2014 at 11:36 PM
I like put a nice lil 20s something dem free love hippies hot pocket in my face and then get some cheese wiz and squirt that all over her face. I dont play with dirty pockets not a contributor.
rubberband February 23, 2014 at 12:24 AM
I make a pretty good jambalaya and one time I decided to up the hot factor and try it on our friends...I got ghost peppers and chopped them up, not listening that they are way more painful to the bare hands when you cut them up...Jalapenos never gave me much trouble. Ghost peppers are insane peppers from HELL. It hurt for hours, that ghost pepper was like a ninja of the pepper world. The jambalaya was too hot to be eaten, and I learned the painful way to respect the ghost pepper and LISTEN and wear gloves next time.
Jordan S. Zoot February 23, 2014 at 02:27 AM
Simple...think MAGGOT and RAT FECES filled Hot Pockets with a Barack Obama logo on them.feed one to your kids and watch them die from e coli poisoning....thank you Barry....reality check libritards.
Bryan Harz February 23, 2014 at 07:46 AM
Jambalaya Pockets...oh wait...that really sounds good! With a big ol' glass of sweet tea. Mmmm.
rubberband February 23, 2014 at 10:48 AM
Maybe homemade......perhaps Nestle will have to rebrand the HotPocket to save it from this current scandal...Gourmet Pockets. Frogleg Pocket...Escargo Pocket..........or to really stimulate the market they could rarify the Pocket...Panda, Rhino, Sharkfin.....endangered animals, other countries national animals...
usmcboi February 23, 2014 at 01:24 PM
rino pocket sounds pretty hot, stimulate the market pocket hmm.
rubberband February 23, 2014 at 02:00 PM
Nestle is totally on to this thread. I ate a healthy meal last night, all smug...and got explosive and horrible food poisoning trots...Irony, you BITCH..Perhaps a perfectly executed troll? Who knows. If it was Steven W...Your profile said you'd "F people up"...if it was you: well met. Food poisoning OVER the internet. Tricky. If it wasn't you, well then let's just call this one "Karma Pocket."
usmcboi February 23, 2014 at 02:54 PM
karma x4 karmacolera it comes and goes.
rubberband February 23, 2014 at 03:16 PM
I laughed hard enough to risk my ass control and soiling myself. I haven't been this sick in a decade. You brilliant twisted S.O.B...."Karmacolera Pocket....... It comes and goes.". .End thread.
usmcboi February 24, 2014 at 12:50 PM
i used to try to eat the worst food possible to see the affects and this ranks up there. The best ones are the meatballs with a chance of cloudy.
rubberband February 24, 2014 at 01:04 PM
So you are like the Aldous Huxley of food experimentation?
usmcboi March 02, 2014 at 11:28 AM
What about chopped bits of whale dick.
rubberband March 02, 2014 at 01:16 PM
It's bold..... Penis pocket? It's catchy but...
Jordan S. Zoot March 02, 2014 at 01:18 PM
Personally...I am still obsessed with Hershey Squirt Pockets....they taste like you know what.
