'Diseased' Hot Pockets Pulled

You knew you shouldn't have been eating them. Hot Pockets products are being pulled from shelves after a California meat firm processed nearly nine million pounds of beef from animals that had not been inspected. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said in a statement Tuesday that the animals were "diseased" or otherwise "unsound," and that products made from the meat were "unfit for human food." Nestle, which owns the Hot Pocket brands, reviewed its supply chain and said that Hot Pockets steak and cheese and croissant crust Philly steak and cheese were the only ones affected by the tainted meat.
