Recall: Nathan's Hot Dogs May Be Contaminated With Metal

CINCINNATI (CBS) – This sounds like the last thing you'd want at your summer barbecue – metal in your hot dogs.

The maker of Nathan's Hot Dogs has announced a nationwide recall of 210,606 pounds of hot dogs because they could be contaminated with metal.

It impacts 14-ounce sealed film packages of "Nathan's Skinless 8 Beef Franks" with a use by date of August 19, 2017, and 16-ounce sealed film packages of "Curtis Beef Master Beef Franks" with a use by date of June 15, 2017.

Anyone who bought the recalled hot dogs should throw them away or return them.
