Campbell’s is getting out in front of a potential PR crisis by recalling 80 cases of SpaghettiOs, which are mislabeled as chicken broth.
“As a result of the mislabeling, the product does not declare the presence of wheat, milk and soy, which are known allergens,” according to a statement from Campbell’s
. “In an abundance of caution, Campbell is retrieving the 80 cases of canned pasta labeled as Swanson 100 percent Natural Chicken Broth from the market. This recall does not affect any other Campbell products.”
The mix-up happened at a facility in Paris, Texas, on July 24. The cases were then shipped to a distribution center that serves Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas, according to the release.

The 1,700-plus affected cans have the following code on the bottom of the label: UPC 51000 02431.
Those tempted to eat the SpaghettiOs anyway should think better of it and return the can to the store where they bought it.
