BREAKING: Conagra Brands is recalling more than 2.5 million pounds of canned meat and poultry products due to a packaging defect which may cause the products to become contaminated without showing any outward signs of contamination.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reports the nationwide recall is for certain items produced between December 12, 2022, and January 13, 2023, primarily centering on various types of vienna sausage packaged under Armour and other brands.
“The problem was discovered,” according to the federal agency, “when the establishment notified FSIS after observing spoiled and/or leaking cans from multiple production dates at the establishment’s warehouse.
“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,” FSIS reports.
