The Food and Drug Administration recall alert! 355,000 cans of Campbell Soup product SpaghettiOs Original were recalled due to a potential choking hazard. Campbell’s soup can be m-m-good until you see a red piece of plastic floating in the bowl. Campbell Soup Company, based in Camden, N.J., is no stranger to recalls or fraud claims but manages to cool down every serving of hot soup. Ah oh SpaghettiOs.
The 14.2 ounce cans in question has a date of February 22, 2017 which is stamped on the base of the can, and a UPC code of 51000 22432 printed under the bar code according to the FDA.
In 2007 Campbell Soup Company announced a voluntary recall on 72,300 18.8 ounce cans of Chunky Baked Potato with Cheddar and Bacon Bits due to a choking hazard. The bits of bacon weren’t as solid as the pieces of hard plastic. Three consumers reportedly had minor injuries in or around the mouth area. 24 states were affected, but not North Carolina.
In 2013 Huffington Post kept America in the recall loop. Campbell Soup Company rushed an 80 case recall on (guess) SpaghettiOs because of a label mix up fixing the label error pronto. Five states were at risk of crying children wondering why their bowl was full of Swanson 100% Natural Chicken Broth and why mom added chicken to a pot full of SpaghettiOs. The m-m-good thing about location, location, location? North Carolina was not one of the five states.
2014 approached with another FDA Campbell Soup Company recall over a spoilage issue. Approximately 300 cases of 24 ounce Prego Traditional Italian jars were pulled. Campbell tossed their spoils. Seven states were at risk of illness but North Carolina wasn’t one of them.
Turns out it was the tomato sauce that caused the recall.
In 2010/2011 Campbell Soup Company and Campbell Sales faced a lawsuit over misrepresented labels. The company agreed to change the labels on their low-sodium tomato soups as part of a $1.05 million preliminary settlement because Campbell cares.
Campbell Soup Company has been dishing out the soup for over 100 years. They put their heart in it, and on it. Then …
In 2013 the heartless lawsuit against Campbell Soup Company, and the American Heart Association, by California resident Kerry O’Shea over misrepresenting how m-m-healthy the ‘Heart-Check’ label truly was. O’Shea’s attorney, Adam Levitt, sent a ‘message to corporate America’ by way of lawsuit and requested compensation for O’Shea.
And earlier this year Campbell Soup Company announced a plan to cut $200 million in expenses over the next three years. All to make up for years of doing the right thing, even with the most recent recall, because whether the camp bell rings or not — Campbell cares.
This week Campbell Soup Company recalled over 300,000 cans of SpaghettiOs due to the choking hazard. Which should be taken seriously since the element in question is plastic. Campbell is doing what they can to survive future recalls.
