NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Heads up, backyard barbecuers! Over 200,000 pounds Nathan’s and Curtis hot dogs have been recalled, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) division announced Friday that Cincinnati based John Morrell & Co. is recalling approximately 210,606 pounds of ready-to-eat hot dog products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal.

The recall targets 14 ounce packages of “Nathan’s Skinless 8 Beef Franks” with a use-by date of August 19, and 16 ounce sealed film packages of “Curtis Beef Master Beef Franks” with a use-by date of June 15.
