Hormel Foods Corporation has announced a recall of over 220,000 pounds of canned products, including the ever popular Spam, due to metal pieces reportedly found inside. Four consumers have complained about the metals found in the canned meats.
The US Department of Agriculture stated that there were reports of “minor oral injuries” but so far no one fell ill or was seriously injured from eating spam and other canned products from the Minnesota-based company. The first report was made to the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on May 25.
The canned products involved in the recall was produced at the company's Nebraska plant.
The recall involves 12-ounce metal cans of "SPAM Classic" best by February 2021.
In a statement, the USDA has listed the products affected by the recall. The following are numbers that you should check on your canned products to see if you have purchased a contaminated product.
12-oz. metal cans containing “SPAM Classic” with a “Best By” February 2021 date and production codes: F020881, F020882, F020883, F020884, F020885, F020886, F020887, F020888 and F020889. These products were shipped throughout the United States.
12-oz. metal cans containing “Hormel Foods Black-Label Luncheon Loaf” with a “Best By” February 2021 date and production codes F02098 and F02108. These products were shipped to Guam only.
The FSIS are concerned that the recalled products may still be in household shelves.
Consumers are now being warned that they may have purchased contaminated SPAM products. They are urged to check their pantries if their purchased cans are included in the recall. Contaminated products should be thrown away or returned to the place where it was purchased.
While the USDA may have only received reports of minor injuries, anyone who’s concerned about getting sick or injured from eating the canned meats should go see a doctor.
