WASHINGTON – A Conagra Brands Inc., establishment in Fort Madison, Iowa, announced the recall of approximately 2,581,816 lbs of canned meat and poultry products due to a packaging defect that may cause the products to become contaminated without showing any signs of contamination.
The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said that the problem was discovered when the establishment notified FSIS after observing spoiled and leaking cans from multiple production dates at the establishment’s warehouse.
The meat and poultry products were produced between Dec. 12, 2022, and Jan. 13, 2023.

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “P4247” on the product cans. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
FSIS said that subsequent investigation by Conagra determined that the cans subject to recall may have been damaged in a manner that is not apparent to consumers, which may allow foodborne pathogens to enter the cans.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products. The agency is concerned that some products may be on retail shelves or in consumers’ pantries.
