DETROIT (WWJ/AP) - This is one recall you definitely want to pay attention to.

Nestle is voluntarily recalling an unspecified number of "Philly Steak" and "Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese" Hot Pockets because they could contain meat that is unfit for human consumption, according to the USDA.

Nearly 9 million pounds of beef products were recalled last week by Rancho Feeding Corp. after regulators said it processed diseased and unsound animals without a full inspection.

Nestle said a small quantity of meat from Rancho was used at a California production facility that makes Hot Pockets. The recall is limited to several batches of the two Hot Pockets flavors, which were distributed nationwide. Click here for a full list of recalled products.

No illnesses have been reported. Customers who have purchased the recalled products should discard any unused portions and visit the place of purchase for a full refund.
