SpaghettiOs Recall Threatens Food Safety

Keep an eye out th035_2010_label_4e next time you put a can of SpaghettiOs in your shopping cart, because more than 35,000 cans have been recalled due to under processed meatball products. 

A malfunctioning cooker in Campbell’s Soup Co. factory seems to be the root of the problem, but no there were no cases of reported illnesses as of yet.

According to the USDA website, these are the infected cans to watch out for:

  • 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.

There should be a “EST 4k” marked on the bottom of the cans from the Paris, Texas factory that the infected cans came from, as well as a use-by date from June 2010 to December 2011.
