If you’re drunk or trailer trash, you might want to think twice about shoving the rest of that Hot Pocket into your face, because contrary to popular opinion, Hot Pockets aren’t made from the finest quality rat meat.
Two types of Hot Pockets products are being pulled from shelves for containing “diseased and unsound animals”. Yum!
Upon discovering that Rancho Feeding Corp, a California meat firm, processed nearly nine million pounds of beef from animals that had not been inspected, Nestle took a look at its supply chain and decided to recall its “Philly Steak and Cheese” and “Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese” Hot Pockets. Nestle said “a small quantity of meat” from Rancho was used at a California production facility that makes Hot Pockets and now all the Pockets must go!
The US. Department of Agriculture said in a statement Tuesday that the Rancho meat company processed animals that were “diseased” or otherwise “unsound,” and that products made from the meat were “unfit for human food”.
No illnesses have been reported so far – outside of the usual Hot Pocket runs that is.
