HOT POCKETS: Included in Massive Meat Recall

That hot pocket you're about to chow down on might not be that hot. In fact, it may contain "diseased and unsound" beef products. That's why Nestle is recalling 238,000 cases of the meat-filled pastries.

The products included in the voluntary recall -- issued on Friday but not announced until Tuesday -- include three different sizes of Philly Steak and Cheese Hot Pockets as well as Hot Pockets Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese products in the two-pack box.

The recalled Hot Pockets include meat produced by Rancho Feeding Corporation. Last week, the Petaluma, California-based plant recalled 8.7 pounds of beef parts that were processed from "diseased and unsound animals," according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Services.
