PETALUMA (CBS SF / AP) — The Rancho Feeding Corp. slaughterhouse recall of more than 8.7 million pounds of beef is now affecting food supplies across the nation, as Nestle voluntarily recalls two of its Hot Pockets products that may have contained some of the affected meat.

The food maker said Tuesday that it is recalling an unspecified number of “Philly Steak” and its “Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese” Hot Pockets in certain sizes listed below.

A small quantity of meat from Rancho was used at a California production facility that makes Hot Pockets.

Rancho recently recalled a full year’s worth of product after regulators said that it processed diseased and unhealthy animals without a full inspection.

The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service said Saturday that without the full inspection, the recalled beef products are unfit for human consumption, and that prompted Nestle to take action as well.

The beef was processed from Jan. 1, 2013, through Jan. 7, 2014, and shipped to distribution centers and retail stores in California, Florida, Illinois and Texas. The products include beef carcasses, oxtail, liver, cheeks, tripe and tongue.

Last month KPIX 5 reported that federal agents raided the slaughterhouse.

The company recalled more than 40,000 pounds of meat products produced on Jan. 8 that also didn’t undergo a full inspection.

No illnesses have been reported.
