7.2M pounds of hot dogs and sausages recalled

Millions of pounds of Sabrett hot dogs and sausages - as well as similar foods sold under other popular brand names - have been recalled after customers reported small pieces of bone and cartilage in some of the foods, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Saturday.

The Bronx, N.Y. establishment produced the hot dog products and sausage items between March 17 and July 4, 2017.

The products bear the establishment number "EST. 8894" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The USDA says one minor injury associated with consumption of the hot dogs has been reported.

Thousands of officers expected at slain trooper's funeral
Serenaded by a pianist, the troopers followed the family of Joel Davis into the funeral Saturday at an Army base in northern NY . His service to the people of Northern New York is greatly appreciated, and his presence among us will be sadly missed.

Complaints received through the FSIS hotline stated that pieces of bone were found in the product. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. "As a fourth-generation, family-owned company, Sabrett takes its responsibility to provide safe foods very seriously with a robust internal food safety program", Marathon said in a statement posted on its website.

Customers impacted by the recall will get full refunds.

Consumers with questions about the recall can call John Terminello, consumer relations, Monday through Friday from 8:30 5:15 p.m., at 1-800-SABRETT. In May, the producer of Nathan's and Curtis beef franks recalled more than 200,000 pounds of hot dogs after complaints about "metal objects" in them.
