ALERT: More Than Two Million Pounds Of Canned Meat Has Been Recalled For….


Approximately 2.6 million pounds of canned meat and poultry products were recalled by this popular brand due to a packaging defect that may cause the products to become contaminated without showing any outward signs of contamination, USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on Jan. 31.

Conagra Brands Inc., of Fort Madison, Iowa, made the decision to recall some of its canned Vienna sausage and chicken products after a discovery that certain cans had the potential to become contaminated.

The products were produced from Dec. 12, 2022, through Jan. 13, 2023, and were shipped and distributed to retail locations nationwide.

Recalled brands include Armour, Kroger, Goya, Prairie Belt, Hargis House, Grace, and Great Value.

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “P4247″ on the can.

The problem was discovered when the company notified FSIS after observing spoiled and/or leaking cans from multiple production dates at the establishment’s warehouse.

A subsequent investigation by the establishment determined that the cans subject to recall may have been damaged in a manner that is not readily apparent to consumers, which may allow foodborne pathogens to enter the cans.

Although there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products, FSIS urges anyone concerned about an injury or illness to contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS is concerned that some products may be on retail shelves or in consumers’ pantries. the release said. Do not consume these products. Instead, throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.

Consumers with food safety questions can call the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 888-MPHotline (888-674-6854) or live chat via Ask USDA from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday.
