ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — The U.S Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Vienna Beef recalled more than 2,000 pounds of hot dogs from possible metal fragment contamination, according to CNN

Numerous food service locations in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin received the recalled Chicago-style hot dogs, which were packaged in ten pound cases of Skinless Beef Frankfurters with EST. 1 inside the USDA mark of inspection, according to the federal agency.

Tom McGlade, vice president of marketing for the Chicago-based company, told CNN that only a small number of restaurants bought the ten pound boxes, so it was easy to track down where the hot dogs had been delivered.

The company reported the problem to the USDA, classifying the action as a Class I recall, meaning there is a “reasonable probability” that eating the hot dogs will cause “serious, adverse health consequences or death.”

No cases of health problems have been reported from the recall so far.
