With the nice summer weather comes a great summertime activity: summer barbecues. However, fans of the classic American activity need to be a little more cautious this year.

According to reports, a major recall has just been issued for a specific brand of hot dogs and sausages. They apparently have an undeclared ingredient that can be harmful to some people.

"Kent Quality Foods, Inc., a Grand Rapids, Mich. establishment, is recalling approximately 308,430 pounds of ready-to-eat hot dog and sausage products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products contain soy, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label," reported the USDA.

The specific "dogs" in question were made on various dates between September 9, 2017, through April 29, 2018. They have the establishment number “EST. 5694” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

Unlike other past recalls, the products aren't isolated in one specific area of the country. They are said to have been shipped nationwide.

"There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider," wrote the USDA.

So, before you fire up the grill for a great afternoon, make sure this recall will not affect you!
