Campbell Soup Company has announced a voluntary recall of 355,000 cans of SpaghettiOs Original.
The recall comes after consumers complained of finding pieces of red plastic in their SpaghettiOs. The plastic is part of the can lining, and apparently it can peel off and fall into the pasta, posing a choking hazard.
How can you tell if your SpaghettiOs is one of the 355,000 cans being recalled? Check for an expiration date of Feb. 22, 2017, at the base of the can, along with a UPC code of 51000 22432 under the bar code. The recall has only been issued for 14.2-ounce cans of SpaghettiOs sold in the United States.
This isn’t the first recall of SpaghettiOs in recent years. In 2013, Campbell Soup Company had to recall cans of SpaghettiOs that had been mislabeled as chicken broth, and in 2010, there was a recall of three varieties of SpaghettiOs after testing found that the meatballs were undercooked.
Recalls are always scary, but especially so when they affect foods that are beloved by so many kids. If you check your pantry and find one of the recalled cans, you should return it to the place of purchase for an exchange or full refund.
If you have any questions, you can contact the company at 1-866-535-3774 or through its Facebook page.
