Nestle is voluntarily recalling two of its Hot Pockets products as part of a larger meat recall. 

The food maker said Tuesday that it is recalling an unspecified number of "Philly Steak" and its "Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese" Hot Pockets in certain sizes. 

Nestle says the products may have been affected by a meat recall by Rancho Feeding Corp. that was announced last week. 

Rancho is recalling more than 8.7 million pounds of beef products after regulators said that it processed diseased and unhealthy animals without a full inspection. The USDA says the products were unfit for human consumption. 

No illnesses have been reported. 

Nestle says a small quantity of meat from Rancho was used at a California production facility that makes Hot Pockets.
