Campbell recalls mislabeled cans sent to 5 states

CAMDEN, N.J. — Campbell Soup said Friday it is recalling 80 cases of soup because they are mislabeled: the label says the cans contain pasta with chicken broth, but they actually contain SpaghettiOs with meatballs.

Campbell said the cans are labeled Swanson 100% Natural Chicken Broth. Because of the labeling error, consumers may not know the foods contain wheat, milk, and soy, which are allergens. The company said the food was made at a facility in Paris, Texas, on July 24. On Aug. 7, the cases were shipped to a distribution center that serves Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Campbell said the recall includes about 1,740 cans of food. The code UPC 51000 02431 appears on the bottom of all the affected cans.

The company said consumers should not eat the SpaghettiOs and should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Shares of Campbell Soup Co. lost 14 cents to close Friday trading at $43.19.
