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.

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