You’ll probably want to check the package before throwing hot dogs on the grill this weekend after a recall of 7 million pounds of franks.

Englewood-based Marathon Enterprises issued a recall of Sabrett beef and pork hot dogs and sausage products because of possible bone fragments. The recall was prompted by one report to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection’s consumer complaint line earlier this week of a “minor oral injury.”

The products included in the recall were produced between March 17 and July 4.  They were sold in both retail establishments and institutional locations nationwide.

The brand names affected include Sabrett, Western Beef, Stew Leonard’s, 1906 Premium, Papaya King, and Sabert Exclusively for Wind Mill natural casing hot dogs, Nathan’s Private Label and Katz’s Delicatessen. A full list is at the bottom of this report.

The affected products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase for a refund, according to Marathon on the Sabrett website. The company has also provided an online application for refunds.

The company on its website said the recall is being done “in an abundance of caution” and regrets the inconvenience.

Sabrett hot dogs have been sold since 1926 and its hot dog carts are ubiquitous in Manhattan. According to its website, Sabrett is the official hot dog of the Prudential Center in Newark and Madison Square Garden.
