When we think of Campbell Soup Co., we don't usually think of tiny pieces of plastic floating in our soup bowls, but that is exactly what has happened in the latest recall scandal to hit the food maker. The household name and king of soups recently initiated a massive nationwide recall of 355,000 cans of its SpaghettiOs product.

Campbell Soup Co. announced the recall out of an abundance of caution after little red pieces of plastic were discovered in its 14.2-ounce SpaghettiOs cans. The food maker issued the recall on Nov. 12, describing a choking hazard related to the plastic lining of its soup cans, which has peeled off and mixed with the food product in certain cases. The problem was discovered by a customer, who called to notify Campbell that pieces of plastic were mixed in with the customer's SpaghettiOs.

Consumers Are Being Asked Not to Consume Affected SpaghettiOs

Considering that SpaghettiOs themselves are red in color, the plastic might be difficult to identify. Customers who are in possession of any cans affected by this recall are being asked not to consume the product and not to feed it to their families in order to avoid the risk of choking. Affected products include 14.2-ounce cans of "SpaghettiOs Original" stamped with a Feb. 22, 2017, best if used by date. The UPC code on affected cans is 51000 22432. Campbell is offering an exchange or a complete refund to any consumer who returns affected cans to the retailer where they bought them.

Personal Injury Claims Relating to Dangerous Food Products

We tend to take the safety of the manufactured food products we purchase in supermarkets for granted, but no food is completely safe from contamination. In some cases, the contamination can be extremely dangerous and even deadly. If you or your loved ones have been seriously harmed by a dangerous food product, you may have a viable claim for damages. By speaking with a qualified personal injury attorney, you can evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your case and determine what steps you should take in your potential lawsuit.
