Campbell soup recalls 15M pounds of SpaghettiOs with meatballs.


The recall was issued after one of the company's plants in Paris

Texas cooker malfunctioned and left meat undercooked. The

Agriculture Department announced the recall late tonight

(Thursday, Jun 17th). Campbell spokesman Anthony Sanzio said the

company is recalling certain lots of the product manufactured

since December 2008 "out of an abundance of caution".

Officials don't know exactly when the cooker at the Paris,

Texas, plant malfunctioned, they believe it happened

recently but aren't 100% sure.

Honestly, people shouldn't eat directly from the can and re-heat their canned food items, especially if there is meat. I haven't had those since my childhood. But it's still good stuff.

Yea I rarely eat this stuff.

I figured I would post this recall for anyone who does eat SpaghettiO's,

especially for the parents out there whose kids eat it.

I just bought two cans about 1 week ago and went to eat it and spit it back up, I meant to buy SpaghettiOs with hot dogs and I accidentally bought it with meatballs.

Good thing I spit it back up, oh and it looked kind of pale.

I don't understand the reasoning for a recall here.

Oh yeah, to collect insurance money. Duh.


If all the problem is, that the food is "undercooked", thats no biggy.

All you do it cook it a few extra minutes at a slightly higher temperature than normal.

Like put it 1 or 1.5 settings higher temp on your stove.

IMHO this recall is done for the insurance. All they had to do was issue were updated cooking instructions. It's just pasta and meat, not rocket science.

Undercooked meat is the LEAST worrisome ingredient (for me) in Spaghetti O's. All of that processed, artificial HFCS crap is indigestible for a healthy body.

Just read the ingredients on the can. Seriously eating stuff like that is a classic example of degeneration of social values. That stuff and other mass produced over preserved/ half rotten junk can barely be called food in my not so humble opinion.

They should use the recalled Spaghetti-Os to plug up the oil spill.

I don't eat this stuff or hardly anything else in a can.

I can only think of a few times in the last 5 years that I've actually ate SpaghettiO's, all of which happened at a friends house after a night of drinking.

I think by law they have to recall it since the meat is undercooked, which would normally come fully cooked. If anyone gets sick from eating it then they would be paying for it.

I don't know the exact temp to cook meat(beef) at and for how long, but if someone who is heating this undercooked meat and pasta is in a rush, heating it by microwave or not cooking it long enough on the stove, there is still the risk of them getting sick from it. I think that's the main reason for the recall, the insurance check is just a bonus from it, along with not getting sued by a consumer who may get sick from it.

Same here, and they have WAY too much sodium, MSG, and preservatives in them.

Well, I would think parents should cook home made meals for their kids instead of this crap.

But who am I kidding? I'm a #ing lunatic.

I am not shocked at all. Few years back my mother was undergoing cancer treatment and finding that her apetite was slim to none, she had asked for chicken noodle soup, so I got her Campbell's, the best right? Blech! It had a worm in it. A nice fat soup filled worm. And it was cut in half, both halves in the same can. We called the 800 # and they sent a courier to my home within 4 hrs to 'pick up the can of soup for analyzing', the courier himself told us to take pictures of it, he waited as we did this, then wisked the can of soup away. They sent us coupons for more soup. My ex called them back and told them we didn't want any soup coupons, and they told him an analysis of the soup would be mailed to us. They mailed it to us, claiming it was not a worm but rather an acceptable amount of mold. Like that was going to make us feel better about their soup! And I know a damn worm when I see one! They also sent a 100.00 check to my ex, I guess for his distress or something, I don't know, he didn't even open the can, taste it, smell it or anything, my mother on the other hand vomited and couldn't eat for days. They never offered an apology to her.

Saw campbells and got worried for a minute.

Love my tomato soup


I can't even stand spaghetti o's. Tomato soup is just about the only canned soup I'll eat now days.

Space Cadet, that's


Luckily I havn't found anything like that in cans of tomato soup
