Beef recall including Hot Pockets affects hundreds of stores in Texas

WACO - Hundreds of Texas stores could have sold tainted beef after a beef recall now expands to 29 more states.

The USDA recalled beef in early February made by the Rancho Feeding Corporation in early January. This is because The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service said the Petaluma, California-based company recalled the meat because it came from "diseased and unsound" animals that weren't properly inspected.

This is a Class-I recall meaning eating the beef could cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.

Nestle USA then did a voluntary recall after finding some of that beef could have been used in some of their products. The corporation makes Hot Pockets and believed some of the products could have been used in their brands. That includes four different types of Philly Steak and Cheese brands.

The USDA now says the original recall affected a much larger number of states. That includes Texas and more than 900 locations across the state. To see the list of locations that could have sold the beef, click here. Some of those locations, though, are IGA, O Mart and Mickey's in Killeen. Target and Super Plaza in Waco. Some other locations are Mickey's in Harker Heights, Dollar Tree in Hewitt, Reads Food Store in Mart and West Food Mart in West.
