CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - Campbell Soup Co. on Thursday announced a
voluntary recall of more than 72,000 cans of a variety of its
Chunky soup because they may contain pieces of hard plastic that
present a choking hazard and could cause injury if swallowed.
The recall involves 18.8-ounce cans of Campbell's Chunky Baked
Potato with Cheddar & Bacon Bits. No other products are affected by
the recall, the company said.
Campbell said three consumers have reported minor injuries in
and around their mouths.
The recalled soups were shipped to 24 states: Alabama, Arkansas,
Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky,
Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New
Mexico, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee,
Texas, Utah and Wyoming.
Consumers who purchased Campbell's Chunky Baked Potato with
Cheddar & Bacon Bits with the can code "JUL 08 2009 07097" were
advised to return the product to the store where it was purchased
for an exchange or refund.
