If your kiddo's summer fav food is hot dogs like my brood, listen up!

Bronx-based Marathon Enterprises Inc. is recalling a whopping 7,196,084 pounds of hot dogs because they may contain extraneous material like bone fragments. Shudder. The recall was initiated after one person received a minor oral injury while consuming one of the company's frankfurters.

According to the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), this high-health risk recall includes beef and pork hot dog and sausage products made between March 17 and July 4, 2017.

You can view labels of the Sabrett, Western Beef, Katz and assorted other brand name products here. And see a full list of products, which were sold nationwide, that are being recalled here. You'll want to look for the establishment number "EST. 8854" inside the USDA mark of inspection, according to FSIS, to see if the hot dogs in your refrigerator are being recalled.

If indeed you did purchase a recalled wiener product, please don't consume or serve them. Instead, toss 'em or return to the store. If you aren't sure if your hot dogs are included in the recall, you can call 1-800-SABRETT with questions.

Now if you'll hold on, I'm going to perform a deep dive of my freezer to see what's going on with our hot dogs. Which my kids ate last night. And this past weekend. And the other night...Yikes!
