DANGER: Step Away From The Spaghetti

One of the most famous makers of spaghetti and meatballs has just announced a major recall, and if you are a typical mother, single father, or poverty stricken college student, you need to read this. Food-maker Conagra has issued a recall that affects more than 700,000 lbs of Chef Boyardee, Libby’s, and other brands of the popular pasta product due to “miss-branding and undeclared allergens.”

Conagra says that the problem was first discovered on June 6 by one of their suppliers who then informed Conagra that some of the ingredients may have contained “undeclared milk.” While the “unintentional milk” may not cause any problems to a vast majority of customers, it does pose a major risk for a small percentage of the population. A Conagra spokesperson said that as yet there has not been any reports of illnesses due to the potential allergen.
