The company that makes Nathan's and Curtis hot dogs is recalling more than 200,000 pounds (90,700 kilograms) of the products after getting complaints of metal found in the packages.

John Morrell and Co., of Cincinnati, Ohio, said it had gotten three complaints and notified the federal government Friday. There have been no confirmed reports of injuries or adverse reactions from the products.

The recall applies to 14-oz sealed film packs labeled "Nathan's Skinless 8 Beef Franks" with a use-by date of Aug. 19, 2017, and to 16-oz sealed film packs labeled "Curtis Beef Master Beef Franks" with a use-by date of June 15, 2017.
