Pinnacle Foods, Inc., a Fort Madison, Iowa establishment, is recalling approximately 549,539 pounds of chili products due to misbranding, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products contain Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), which is not declared on the product label.
The Armour Chili items were produced on various dates in Sept. 2015, and Nov. 2015. The following products are subject to recall: 14-oz. cans of “Armour Chili No Beans” with Best By Dates: Best By SEP-08-18; Best By SEP-10-18; Best By SEP-13-18; Best By SEP-20-18; Best By SEP-21-18; Best By SEP-27-18; Best By SEP-28-18; Best By NOV-10-18; Best By NOV-11-18; Best By NOV-22-18; Best By NOV-23-18; Best By NOV-24-18.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 2AD” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
The problem was discovered by the firm. The firm received new product labels in Sept. 2015; these new labels no longer listed MSG. However, the firm continued to use their old seasoning on products, which does contain MSG. Upon discovery of the discrepancy, all affected product within the firm’s control was placed on hold.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
