More than 200,000 pounds of Nathan’s and Curtis hot dogs are being recalled after complaints the meat products contained metal pieces.

The recall of 210,606 pounds of hot dogs includes the 14-ounce packages of “Nathan’s Skinless 8 Beef Franks,” with a use by date of Aug. 19, 2017, and 16-ounce packages of “Curtis Beef Master Beef Franks,” with a use by date of June 15, 2017.

Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.”
