According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), Marathon Enterprises Inc., makers of various Sabrett, Western Beef, 1906 Premium beef and pork hot dog and sausage products recently recalled over 7 million pounds of hot dog products. These items were recalled because of contamination with bone fragments and were shipped to retail and institutional locations throughout the country. Production dates were between March, 17, 2017 and July 4, 2017.

Discovery of the extraneous bone fragments was made through FSIS' Consumer Complaint Monitoring System (CCMS) on July 10, 2017, following complaints of pieces of bone found in the products. So far, one oral injury has been traced to consumption of the product. Consumers should not use any of the products affected by the recall. They should be thrown away or returned to the location where purchased.
