Several varieties of Hot Pockets were voluntarily recalled by Nestle USA on Tuesday, after it was discovered that some of the meat had not undergone proper inspection.

Nestle recalled Philly Steak and Cheese Hot Pockets in three different package sizes and Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese in two pack boxes.

The company has recommended that consumers return the product for a full refund.

The United States Department of Agriculture originally recalled more than 8.7 million pounds of meat on Feb. 8 that had been shipped to Florida, California, Illinois, Texas and Washington. The meat was produced by Rancho Feeding Corporation and deemed unfit for human consumption, as the animals were found to be unsound and diseased.

Rancho Feeding Corp. "processed diseased and unsound animals and carried out these activities without the benefit or full benefit of federal inspection,” the recall report read.

No illnesses have been reported since the recall.
