15 Million Pounds of SpaghettiOs Recalled

Campbell Soup is recalling 15 million pounds of SpaghettiOs with meatballs, some originating back to 2008.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Campbell Soup (CPB) - Get Report is recalling 15 million pounds of SpaghettiOs with meatballs following a cooker malfunction at one of its Texas plants.

The malfunction resulted in undercooked meat, the Agriculture Department announced Thursday evening.

The SpaghettiO meals being recalled consist of children's meals SpaghettiOs with Meatballs, SpaghettiOs A to Z with Meatballs and SpaghettiOs Fun Shapes with Meatballs. The bottom of their cans are marked with "EST 4K" and expiration dates of between June 2010 and December 2011.

It's still unclear when the cooker began to malfunction, so Campbell is recalling products that have been out since Dec. 2008, to err on the safe side. The company estimates that about 35,000 cases of the SpaghettiOs on recall are currently on the market.

Campbell adds that much of this has probably already been eaten.
