50,000 Lbs. Of Hot Dogs Recalled

The U.S. Agriculture Department says a Buffalo, N.Y., firm is recalling about 50,000 pounds of frankfurters because of possible undercooking.

The agency said it has not received any reports of illnesses caused by the meat, which was recalled after the company, Zemco Industry Inc., received a consumer complaint.

The hot dogs were sold in one- to five-pound packages on Oct. 5 and 6 and distributed to stores in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Vermont. Each package bears the code EST. 5222.
