If you don’t want to risk contracting salmonella, then make sure to toss out this product if you have it in your freezer right now!

USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced that Conagra Brands, Inc. has recalled a brownie mix dessert, which is included in frozen breaded chicken nugget meal trays, due to possible salmonella contamination.

Yuck!

The recall goes for a staggering 110,817 pounds of the 7.4-ounce vacuum-packed trays that contain “Banquet Chicken Nuggets with Mac & Cheese” with Code 3100080921 and a “best if used by” date of July 20, 2018. The FSIS establishment number “P-9” is printed on the side of the box.

The frozen meals were shipped to stores across the nation, and while no reports of illnesses have yet been linked with the recalled products, according to FSIS, that doesn’t mean anybody who owns one of these products should risk it. Either toss out the recalled product, or return it to the place you purchased it for a full refund, to be on the safe side.

For more information, consumers can call Conagra Brands Consumer Affairs at 1-800-289-6014.

Campbell’s Issues A Massive Chicken Soup Recall

category:

By Cooking Panda

Everybody makes mistakes … everybody has those days!

Due to a pretty silly branding mistake, Campbell’s Soup Company has issued a voluntary massive recall of about 4,185 pounds of chicken soup products.

Unfortunately, on April 20 the firm received notification from their corporate office that multiple consumers had called to complain that the soups they purchased labeled as “Campbell’s Homestyle Healthy Request Chicken with Whole Grain Pasta” were actually “Campbell’s Homestyle Healthy Request Italian-Style Wedding Spinach & Meatballs in Chicken Broth” in the wrong packaging.

Whoops!

Because of the misbranding and undeclared allergens (the Wedding Spinach & Meatball soup contains milk, while the Chicken with Whole Grain Pasta soup does not) the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced on April 22 that the chicken with whole grain pasta soups, which were produced on February 13, 2017, were being recalled.

Luckily, nobody has called to report an illness or adverse reaction to consuming the wrong kind of soup. Nevertheless, Campbell’s would like to remind consumers that if they feel unwell after consuming the wrong soup, they should contact a healthcare provider ASAP.

Additionally, Campbell’s urges those who purchased the mislabeled product not to consume it, and instead throw the product out or return it to the place of purchase for a refund.

959 Pounds Of Lunchables Recalled

By Cooking Panda

I wouldn’t touch the things now, but when I was a kid the highlight of my school day lunches was getting to see which Lunchable my parents had packed for me to eat that day.

Unfortunately, 959 pounds of Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers are being recalled due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The recalled ready-to-eat meat and cheese packaged lunch items have a USE BY date of 25 DEC 2016; the product also contains two known but undeclared allergens: wheat and soy.

Happily enough, even though the problem was discovered on Oct. 6, when a consumer issued a complaint with the firm, no illnesses were associated with the complaint.

The issue was that the recalled Lunchables were incorrectly labeled as Nacho Lunchables, thereby rendering all of the nutrition facts and warning statements on the packages false.

Here is a comparison of the two different products’ nutrition labels:

If you have purchased these Lunchables, the FSIS asks that instead of consuming them, you either throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

If you have any further questions, they ask that you call the manufacturer for Lunchables, Heinz, at 1-800-573-3877.
