Last week, Campbell Soup Company announced a national recall of 355,000
cans of SpaghettiOs soup. This food recall is attributed to pieces of
red plastic being found in the 14.2-ounce cans, which came from the can’s
lining. After receiving several complaints, Campbell voluntarily recalled
the cans for a potential choking hazard.
Campbell instructs consumers to avoid eating from recalled cans and return
them to the store of purchase for an exchange or full refund. Affected
cans have a stamp date of February 22, 2017 on the bottom, as well as
UPC code 51000 22432 located beneath the barcode.
Another food recall to hit the consumer market recently came from Virginia
Diner, Inc. The company’s Wakefield, VA location recently recalled
Happy Holidays Pecan Turtledoves Chocolate Caramel Pecan Clusters. These
candies are said to possibly contain peanuts and peanut allergens, which
can be life-threatening for consumers who are sensitive to peanuts. A
consumer reported the issue, leading to a recall on 10-ounce cans with
UPC code 0 85582 01155 2 and lot code 092915 PNT. Fortunately, no other
Virginia Diner brand products are involved in the recall. The company
voluntarily recalled the problem despite no injuries or illnesses being reported.
Food recalls are surprisingly common, so consumers should educate themselves
and stay current on the most recent defective items. There have been countless
instances of illness as a result of food items that were later recalled,
which many times lead to legal suits against the manufacturer. In the
event that a food product is sold to the public and leads to injury or
death, the company can be held liable. If you or someone you know have
been affected in such a way by a food product that was later recalled,
