Today in the very worst news ever, Nestlé USA’s Prepared Foods Division has announced a recall of my very favorite frozen treat.
Because Hot Pockets ® Philly Steak & Cheese sandwich might, MIGHT be made with the meat of “diseased and unsound animals.”
Oh God, I ate one last night.
The sandwiches (if that’s what you want to call a frozen hunk of crust, meat and cheese with a hot lava center) were recalled because Nestle may have indirectly purchased meat from Rancho Feeding Corporation, which is in the middle of a USDA recall of its own for beef processed at its plant.
Apparently Rancho “processed diseased animals” without a full inspection and now I feel like I might vomit.
Ok, I’m pulling it together. Here’s what you guys need to know:
