In other news of concerning recalls, Conagra Brands has just issued a massive recall of Chef Boyardee as well as some of its other pasta products. Oh boy (ardee). 

The company is now recalling about 717,338 pounds of spaghetti and meatballs products, which includes Chef Boyardee Mini Pasta Shells & Meatballs, because they contain milk, though the allergen is not listed on the product label, the USDA announced on June 9. 

That’s definitely more spaghetti and meatballs than the Lady and the Tramp could ever eat on their date night. 

That’s also bad news for anyone with dairy allergies who may have bought any of these recalled products assuming that they don’t contain milk.

“Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase,” states the USDA’s posting.

This is a Class I Recall, meaning that the health risk is high, per the USDA recall classifications. 

According to the USDA’s website, the issue was discovered on June 6, when Conagra Brands was notified by an ingredient supplier that the breadcrumbs used in these products potentially contained undeclared milk. Yikes! 

The recalled products were produced on Jan. 5 and Jan. 12, 2017. They were shipped nationwide, and have “EST. 794M” inside the USDA mark of inspection, so you can check whether what you bought was recalled.

“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products,” reads the posting from the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. 

“The safety of our food is a top priority and we apologize for any inconvenience,” Conagra said in a statement, according to CNN.
