A Pennsylvania Spaghetti and Meatball Manufacturer is recalling over 700,000 pounds of their product due to misbranding of an ingredient. Conagra Brands, Inc. is initiating the recall after they received information from a supplier they used for bread crumbs. The supplier stated that the bread crumbs may have contained milk. Since this was not initially disclosed the labels on the spaghetti and meatballs do not list milk as an ingredient. This is dangerous to those who suffer from severe milk allergies. The recall affects several brands sold at various suppliers. Click here for an image of the affected brands’ labels.
So far there have been no reports of illness due to the consumption of these products.
