Campbell Soup Recalls Chicken Soup Products for Mislabeling and Undeclared Milk
The products contained a different soup than advertised on the label
Campbell Soup Company has recalled roughly 4,185 pounds of chicken soup products due to misbranding and undeclared milk, a known allergen.
The affected products were produced on February 13, 2017 and include 18.6-ounce cans of Campbell's Homestyle Healthy Request Chicken with Whole Grain Pasta. They have a best-by date of Feb. 13, 2019 and establishment number EST. 4R printed on the bottom of the cans. The products were shipping to retailers in Florida.
The labels on the cans advertised the contents as Campbell's Homestyle Healthy Request Chicken with Whole Grain Pasta, but the contents are actually Campbell's Homestyle Healthy Request Italian-Style Wedding Spinach & Meatballs in Chicken Broth.
Although the company has not received any confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the affected products, consumers are urged to throw them away or take them back to the place of purchase.
Anyone concerned about any type of adverse reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
