Chef Boyardee & Libby’s Products Part of Huge Recall

Cans of Libby’s and Chef Boyardee spaghetti and meatball products are among the affected items in a large recall of Conagra Brands Inc. products due to a labeling issue.


According to the FDA release, the products contain milk—a known allergen—but did not list the ingredient on the product label. "The problem was discovered on June 6, 2017, when the company received notification from an ingredient supplier that the bread crumbs the company received and used in the recalled products potentially contained undeclared milk." Below is a full list of items included in the recall:
