If you have Campbellâs soup cans at home, youâll want to check your cupboards. The company has issued a recall for over 3,600 cans of soup. The recall is a result ofÂ âmisbranding and undeclared allergens.â The recalled cans contain milk, a popular allergen, but milk isnât listen as an ingredient on the label.
Campbellâs Soup Recall
The soup is considered a Class 1 recall because of the potential danger that consumers face. A recall is labeled Class 1 if âthere is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.â For consumers with an allergy to milk, those consequences are very real.
Campbell became aware of the problem on April 20th. They were notified that multiple customers had complained that the label on the soup didnât match the actual ingredients. Cans that were labeled âCampbellâs Homestyle Healthy Request Chicken with Whole Grain Pasta,â actually contained âCampbellâs Homestyle Healthy Request Italian-Style Wedding Spinach Meatballs in Chicken Broth.â Not only were consumers winding up with something they didnât intend to buy, the ingredients were also different in a big way. One of the soups contains milk.
Check Your Campbellâs Soup Cans
If anyone in your household has a milk allergy, make sure you check your Campbellâs soup cans. The product to look for is any 18.6-oz can of âCampbellâs Homestyle Healthy Request Chicken with Whole Grain Pasta.â The Best By date on the affected cans will read Feb. 13, 2019. Itâs located on the bottom of the can.
The cans of soup that are part of the recall also have âEST 4Râ printed on the bottom. They were sent to stores in Florida. These cans actually contain âCampbellâs Homestyle Italian-Style Wedding Spinach Meatballs in Chicken Broth.âÂ If you or a family member experience an allergic reaction after eating the mislabeled soup, visit a health care professional immediately.
