If you’re a huge fan of hot dogs, and you live in the United States, then you should be very worried. According to Reuters, almost 7 million pounds of hot dogs and sausages under the Sabrett brand are being recalled, and here’s why. Apparently, small pieces of bone were found causing a ‘minor oral injury’ in at least one consumer. Yikes!
Thankfully, that was the only injury reported. However, Marathon, the parent company, seemed to be taking the matter quite seriously. Their website statement said, “As a fourth-generation, family-owned company, Sabrett takes its responsibility to provide safe foods very seriously with a robust internal food safety program. Sabrett deeply regrets any concern or inconvenience this has caused its loyal customers.”
Although there didn’t seem to be a serious hazard the company said the recall was made due to “an abundance of caution”. We’re sure that, while the American public may be outraged for some time, it’s only a matter of time before their hot dog fears are allayed. After all, it is summer, and nothing says summer more than a hot dog on the beach.
