Watch out for these Nathan’s and Curtis hot dogs

Food manufacturer John Morrell and Co. received three complaints from consumers about metal objects in the frankfurters.

Also included in the recall are Curtis hot dogs.

The beef franks were made on Jan. 26 and have the following labels:

  • 14 oz. sealed film packages of Nathan’s Skinless 8 Beef Franks – Use By date of Aug. 19, 2017.
  • 16 oz. sealed film packages of Curtis Beef Master Beef Franks – Use By date of June 15, 2017.

Look for a product stamp reading “EST. 296” on the side of the packages.

These products were shipped to retailers nationwide. Thankfully, no injuries or adverse reactions from eating the hot dogs have been reported.

If you have a pack in your fridge, return it to the store for a refund or exchange.
