This Everyday Product Just Got Recalled

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has reported that Conagra Brands is recalling over 2.6 million pounds of its canned meat and poultry products, including Vienna sausages, due to concerns that the damaged packaging may lead to contamination.

The affected products were manufactured by Conagra Brands between December 12, 2022, and January 13, 2023, and were distributed to retailers nationwide.

The cans can be identified by the code “P4247” on the bottom of the can near the “best by” date. Although no illnesses have been reported yet, the FSIS is advising consumers to avoid consuming the recalled products and return or discard them.

Conagra Brands detected the issue when it noticed “spoiled and/or leaking cans from multiple production dates” at its warehouse, and determined that the cans were damaged in a way that could allow harmful bacteria to enter and contaminate the meat. However, the damage may not be visible to consumers.
