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.

• 18.8-oz. cans containing “chef’s cupboard CHUNKY BEEF with COUNTRY VEGETABLES” with a “BB/MA 2020 SE 25” date and code “EST 142 613 18 269” on the bottom of the cans.

• 18.8-oz. cans containing “chef’s cupboard CHUNKY SIRLOIN BURGER with COUNTRY VEGETABLES” with a “BB/MA 2021 FE 18” date and code “EST 142 614 19 049” 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.

Questions about the recall can be directed to John St. Germain, vice president of sales, BCI Foods Inc., at (416) 882-3513.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
