Check your cabinets now! If you bought SpaghettiOs recently you may have a portion of the 15 million pounds of recalled product. Due to undercooked meat, the recall is on all products made between December 2008 and June 2010 bearing the “U5 “code on the bottom. No one has reported sickness, yet, but Campbell Soup Company still warns consumers.
According to The Associated Press:
The Agriculture Department announced the recall late Thursday. Campbell spokesman Anthony Sanzio said the company is recalling certain lots of the product manufactured since December 2008 “out of an abundance of caution” because officials don’t know exactly when the cooker at the Paris, Texas, plant malfunctioned. Officials believe it happened recently but aren’t sure, he said.
The meatballs that went through the cooker did not get the requisite amount of heat, according to the company.
Recalled are certain lots of three varieties of the pasta product often consumed by children: SpaghettiOs with Meatballs, SpaghettiOs A to Z with Meatballs, and SpaghettiOs Fun Shapes with Meatballs (Cars).
