Canned Meat Company, Conagra, Recalls over 2.5 Million Pounds of Products

Canned Meat Company, Conagra, Recalls over 2.5 Million Pounds of Products

Last week, the canned meat company, Conagra Brands, recalled over 2.5 million pounds of canned meat and poultry due to a packaging defect that may cause contamination.


The problem was reported after someone in an Iowa Conagra location notified the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of leaking and spoiled cans with multiple production dates in a warehouse, according to the agency’s report.


The recall impacts goods that were produced between Dec. 12, 2022 and Jan, 13, 2023. The items have the establishment number P4247. Brand names included in the recall notice are Armour Star potted meat, Vienna sausage and canned Vienna sausage products from Goya, Kroger and Prairie Belt.


“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 foodborne pathogens to enter the cans,” the FSIS announcement stated.


There have been no confirmed reports of illness due to the consumption of the products yet.


Customers who are in procession of the effected products should not consume them and should either throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.


Customers who have questions about the recall or need assistance should call 800-289-6014, or email [email protected].
