Nearly 3,300 cans of soup sent to Aldi stores in Pennsylvania and New York from Canada were recalled this week for not undergoing import re-inspection, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s FSIS.
BCI Foods, Inc., a Quebec importer, recalled the products after it was discovered during a routing monitoring of all FSIS imports that these particular items did not go through the proper re-inspection channels.
These recall affects the following:
• 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.
The recalled products do not bear the FSIS mark of inspection, but do have Canada’s establishment number 142 in the Canadian inspection mark.
There are no known or reported adverse reactions associated with consumption of the products. However, consumers who may have the products are urged not to consume them. Products can be discarded or returned to place of purchase.
Consumers with questions or concerns about the recall should call John St. Germain, VP of Sales for BCI Foods Inc., at (416) 882-3513.
