Toss These Hunt's Product If You've Got Them In Your Pantry - Pronto

Food recalls due to E Coli and Salmonella contamination are increasingly common today. There are a number of reasons for this serious and growing problem, but the overuse of antibiotics in the livestock industry is certainly a big part of the problem.

As a recent example of this trend, Conagra Brands, Inc., announced on April 2nd that it is voluntarily recalling a select large Hunt’s Chili Kits due to the possibility of Salmonella in the chili seasoning packet that comes with the kit. The chili seasoning in the packet comes from a supplier who informed Conagra of the possible presence of Salmonella in a raw material of the chili seasoning.

Note that no Salmonella was found in any of the finished product supplied to Conagra Brands, but the company has decided to recall the product to be 100% certain that no one gets sick.

No reports of problems related to consumption of this product have been made so far. Keep in mind that Salmonella is a bacteria that typically results in diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps in humans.

Most individuals recover without the need for hospitalization or drugs. The diarrhea may be so severe, however, that the patient must be hospitalized. Senior citizens, babies and babies with impaired immune systems are more likely to suffer a severe infection.

Note that this canned food product as distributed in retail stores, military commissaries and online throughout the US. The product code information identifying the recalled items can be seen on the underside of the kit below the barcode.

No other products are impacted by the recall of the chili kits.
The FDA advises consumers to not eat the product if they bought it, but instead return it to the store where they bought it.

Conagra Brands is cooperating fully with the FDA on this recall, and is working diligently to make sure that all potentially contaminated products are removed from store shelves and are not sold or consumed.
