Uh-oh, SpaghettiOs

If you’ve got some SpaghettiOs in your pantry, you may want to take a look at this:

Campbell Soup Co. is recalling nearly 15 million pounds of canned SpaghettiOs with meatballs because of possible under-processing, the U.S. agriculture department said.

The recall includes 14.75-ounce cans with a use-by date between June 2010 and December 2011 of three varieties of the product: “SpaghettiOs with Meatballs,” “SpaghettiOs A to Z with Meatballs” and “SpaghettiOs Fun Shapes with Meatballs (Cars).”

Consumers who have purchased those products with a plant code of “EST4K” should not eat them and should return them to the store where they were purchased for an exchange or full refund, Campbell Soup said.

Ok, just a couple of things here. First, it’s just wrong that the problem here is that the food was under-processed. Seriously. Perhaps somebody at the plant had the following realization: “Wait. This comes too close to resembling real food! Recall!” Second, the recall is on product with use-by dates ranging one and a half years. What the hell has been going on at the SpaghettiO factory for one and a half years?
