Soups sold at Pennsylvania Aldi stores included in recall
Roughly 3,300 pounds cans of soup sent to Aldi stores in Pennsylvania and New York were recalled this week for not undergoing import re-inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said.
BCI Foods, Inc., a Quebec, Canada firm and importer recalled the items after the problem was discovered during routine FSIS monitoring of imported products.
These products, imported on July 17, have been recalled:
• 19-oz. cans containing “chef’s cupboard CLASSIC HOMESTYLE CHICKEN & WILD RICE” with a “BB/MA 2021 MR 04” date and code “EST 142 602 19 064” on the bottom of the cans.
• 19-oz. cans containing “chef’s cupboard CLASSIC HOMESTYLE ITALIAN-STYLE WEDDING with Meatballs & Chicken” with a “BB/MA 2021 MR 03” date and code “EST 142 603 19 063” on the bottom of the cans.

According to the service, the recalled items don’t have a USDA mark of inspection, but have Canada’s establishment number “142” within the Canadian mark of inspection.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products, but people who bought them are urged not to consume them.
The service said the items should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a health care provider.
