Why Conagra Just Recalled 700K Pounds of Chef Boyardee, Libby’s Spaghetti and Meatballs

By Heather Callaghan, Natural Blaze

Today, Conagra brands just announced a recall of about 725,000 lbs of Chef Boyardee, Libby’s, and other brands‘ spaghetti and meatballs products due to “misbranding and undeclared allergens.”

The undeclared allergens?

“Undeclared milk.”

Undeclared milk allergens on the label can pose a major danger to children fed these products by caretakers who read the labels and think it’s safe to feed them.

The problem was first discovered on June 6 when a supplier informed Conagra some of the ingredients may have contained “undeclared milk.”

So far, there have been no reported illnesses, Conagra said.

The recalled cans include the following labels – View Labels (PDF only):
