Campbell’s Orders a Massive Recall of Spaghetti-Os
A plant under processed 15 million pounds of meat in the canned food.
Remember the classic commercial “Uh, oh, Spaghetti-Os”? It’s not so cute any more.
The Campbell Soup Supply Company, of Paris, Texas announced that it was recalling 15 million pounds of the O-shape pasta and meatballs after a routine inspection by the company found that the meatballs might be undercooked, according to the federal Food and Safety Inspection Service.
No health problems have been reported, the FSIS said.
The FSIS said the affected products are:
- 14.75-ounce cans of “SpaghettiOs” with Meatballs, bearing the identifying product code “U5” on the bottom of the can.
- 14.75-ounce cans of “SpaghettiOs” A to Z with Meatballs, bearing the identifying product code “4N” on the bottom of the can.
- 14.75-ounce cans of “SpaghettiOs” Fun Shapes with Meatballs (Cars), bearing the identifying product code “KS” on the bottom of the can.
The products have the establishment number “EST 4K,” as well as a “Use By” date between June 2010 and December 2011 on the bottom of each can. The food, manufactured between December 2008 and June 2010, was sent to retailers across the country and distributed to retail establishments nationwide. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website
The FSIS also announced another recall, of Marie Callender’s frozen dinners. ConAgra Foods, the manufacturer, is recalling all dinners bearing the label “Marie Callender’s Cheesy Chicken & Rice White Meat Chicken, and Broccoli over Rice Topped with Rich Cheddar Sauce.” The food has been linked to a salmonella outbreak in several states, the agency said. So far, eight people who contracted salmonella reported eating the dinners.
