Happy summer! Are you enjoying the sun and the grass and the camaraderie found at barbecues?

WASHINGTON, July 15, 2017- Marathon Enterprises Inc., a Bronx, N.Y. establishment, is recalling approximately 7,196,084 pounds of hot dog products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically bone fragments, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. Complaints stated that extraneous material, specifically pieces of bone, were found within the product.

Hot dogs sit in buns at the official weigh-in ceremony for the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 3, 2012 at City Hall in NY.

The family-owned company says they're working closely with the USDA to communicate to its customers and "assure those customers that the recalled products are no longer in stores". One person suffered a minor oral injury.

Jose Mourinho Wants To More Manchester United Signings
It's no secret that United and Real were negotiating about Morata this summer, but they just couldn't hammer out a deal. However, the Old Trafford club were successful in beating the Blues in signing the Premier League striker.

Customers who already purchased the items are encouraged to throw them away, and contact Sabrett to receive a full refund. "At that time, staff immediately investigated and identified an issue that could have allowed this to occur, and an equipment installation issue was quickly addressed".

Friday's announcement wasn't the first hot dog recall so far this year.

The Sabrett brand will be familiar to people living in or visiting Manhattan, where street-corner vendors sell hot dogs under blue and yellow striped Sabrett umbrellas. Just make sure you don't use ketchup.
