Campbell’s Issues A Massive Chicken Soup Recall
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.
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.campbell's, Chicken Soup, fsis, Italian-Style Wedding Spinach & Meatballs in Chicken Broth, recall
