ConAgra Brands Inc. based out of Russellville, Arkansas, has issued a recall for 135,159 pounds of their Salisbury steak products following complaints. At least three consumers have reported mouth injuries after eating their products, and they hope that the recall will prevent further injuries. Unfortunately, the dish is a very beloved favorite and they hope that people will remember to check the freezer.
