Recall for SpaghettiOs with Meatballs Issued for 15M Pounds of Canned Food

About 15 million pounds of “SpaghettiOs with Meatballs” have been recalled because of a production error that could cause the meat in the cans to spoil, potentially leading to food poisoning illness

The SpaghettiOs recall was announced on June 17 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

Campbell Soup Supply Company, LLC said it was recalling the SpaghettiOs because it was possible that the cans were under processed. An in-house inspection of a processing plant found that a cooker that was supposed to sterilize the food before canning was not working correctly. This could lead the meat in the cans to spoil.
