Yikes! There’s Been A Massive Recall of Chef Boyardee and Other Pasta Products

Tags:

Bad news for food packaging giant Conagra Brands. More than 700,000 pounds of pasta products, including some Chef Boyardee favorites, are being recalled.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced that 700,125 pounds of spaghetti and meatball packages are under a Class I recall (the highest level of danger) for “misbranding and undeclared allergens.” Milk, a known allergen for some, is an ingredient in these products that is not listed on the packaging.

On June 6, 2017, someone noticed that breadcrumbs that were supplied to Conagra and used in the above mentioned products possibly contained undeclared milk. Since then, fortunately, no reports of illness have been confirmed.

This comes weeks after Conagra was hit with another recall when Banquet frozen dinners were recalled after salmonella contamination.

Visit the FDA’s website for more information. If you think you may be affected, don’t hesitate to visit your doctor.
