PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — If you shop at ALDI grocery stores, you probably want to check your cupboards right now — there’s a recall for meat and chicken soup products made by Canadian-based BCI Foods Inc.
The soups that can be found at ALDI stores in Pennsylvania and New York were not presented for import re-inspection, according to the United States Department of Agriculture.
This is a Class I Recall, which means eating the soup could lead to “serious health consequences” or even death, the USDA says.
Here are the soups in question.
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.
If any of these soups are in your home and the can has a Canadian mark of inspection number (U.S. marks are fine), you need to toss it or take it back.
KYW Newsradio stopped by an ALDI on West Girard Avenue in Philadelphia and found cans of each of these soups, but none were subject to recall.
The USDA also has images of the labels of these items.
