(Washington, DC) -- Officials say the recall of millions of pounds of beef products processed by California-based Rancho Feeding Corporation includes one of the popular "Hot Pockets" heat-and-serve sandwiches. The Hot Pockets Philly Steak and Cheese sandwiches are distributed to some Fred Meyer and QFC stores in Oregon and Washington and are included in the recall of about eight-point-seven-million pounds of Rancho Feeding meat products. The USDA issued the recall on February 8th, saying the meat was processed from "diseased and unsound" animals and was unfit for human consumption. Other products from the company were distributed to meat markets and smaller stores in Oregon and Washington.
