Conagra Brands recalls products due to can defects
Conagra Brands, Inc., a Fort Madison, Iowa establishment, is recalling more than 2.5 million pounds of canned meat and poultry products due to a packaging defect.
The defect may cause the products to become contaminated without showing any outward signs of contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.
The meat and poultry products were produced between December 12, 2022, and January 13, 2023. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P4247” on the product cans. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
The problem was discovered when the establishment notified FSIS after observing spoiled and/or leaking cans from multiple production dates at the establishment’s warehouse.
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 food-borne pathogens to enter the cans.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be on retail shelves or in consumers’ pantries. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
