    Bar-S Foods Company is recalling nearly 400,000 pounds of hot dogs and corn dogs due to possible listeria contamination, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

    The Oklahoma-based company issued the recall Tuesday for chicken and pork hot dogs and corn dogs produced July 10 through 13 and sold nationwide, the USDA said.

    Recalled products include:

    • 16-ounce packages of Bun Length Franks with a "use by" date of Oct. 11, 2016, and case code 209.
