Food giant Nestlé has announced a recall of some of its Hot Pocket brand frozen sandwiches because they contain meat from a California-based company that said it used “diseased and unsound” animals.

Rancho Feeding Corporation last week recalled nearly 9 million pounds of meat products after the U.S. Department of Agriculture said the facility processed “diseased and unhealthy animals” without a full federal inspection.

Nestlé said the Hot Pocket flavors being recalled are the Philly Steak and Cheese in three different pack sizes and Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese, in the two-pack box.

Consumers should not eat the product, but instead should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund or contact Nestlé Consumer Services at 1-800-392-4057.
