Following the malfunctioning of a cooker at its Paris, Texas, plant, Campbell Soup Co. has voluntarily recalled 15 million pounds, or 35,000 cases, of SpaghettiOs with meatballs, the U. S. Agriculture Department revealed on Thursday.
According to Campbell Spokesman, Anthony Sanzio, the recall resulted out of fears that the cooker's malfunctioning might have left the meat undercooked.
Dubbing the recall as a move necessitated by "an abundance of caution", Mr. Sanzio said certain lots of the product manufactured since December 2008 were being recalled.
The company revealed that the recalled products have a use-by date between June 2010 and December 2011 printed on the bottom of the can.
The company, said he, was not sure exactly when the cooker malfunctioned and the meatballs that went through the device did not get the amount of heat they should have otherwise got.
According to the company, the recalled products include specified lots of three varieties of the pasta product: SpaghettiOs with Meatballs, SpaghettiOs A to Z with Meatballs, and SpaghettiOs Fun Shapes with Meatballs (Cars).
Though no complaints of any illnesses or other problems due to the consumption of SpaghettiOs have been reported so far, the company said consumers eating the under-processed product might be in for nausea, vomiting or other gastrointestinal issues.
