Nestle Issues Recall of Hot Pockets for Possible "Diseased and Unsound Animals" 




Gross, gross, gross. Any Hot Pocket fans out there? Stop it, seriously. Nestle, the parent company of the glorified hand pies, is calling for a voluntary recall for two varieties of its Philly Steak & Cheese pockets because the company indirectly purchased meat via Rancho Feeding Corporation, which is undergoing its own recall of 8.7 million pounds of beef processed at the plant in 2013. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has asserted that Rancho “processed diseased animals” without a full inspection.

I've gotta say, Jim Gaffigan warned us about this.
