The news was released this week that over 2,000 pounds of Vienna Beef hot dogs have been recalled. The popular hot dogs may contain metal fragments, according to recent reports. 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service revealed that the Chicago-style hot dogs were sent to several different states. Several locations in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin received the recalled products.

According to CNN, the hot dogs were packaged in 10-pound cases of Skinless Beef Frankfurters with EST. 1 as the USDA mark of inspection. They were produced on May 2.

Tom McGlade, the vice president of marketing, said, "We picked it all up about a week and a half ago."

McGlade said that they were able to identify exactly where the products were delivered. He also ensured consumers that this would mostly affect restaurants. 

At this point, no reports of health problems have emerged as a result of this recall. However, consumers and restaurants should be aware of the recall and should throw away or return the packages.

According to reports, there is a "high" health risk associated with eating these recalled products.
