After some customers complained, the Campbell Soup Company discovered that the red plastic lining of cans of Original flavor SpaghettiOs has peeled off, ending up in the tomato sauce and posing a choking hazard. The recall includes 355,000 cans, which seems like a massive amount, but is quite small compared to the total number of SpaghettiOs cans sold nationwide. [More]
We were under the impression that when SpaghettiOs Shrink Rayed their standard-size cans to 14 ounces across all flavors to celebrate the product’s 50th birthday, this was done to harmonize the package size across the whole brand.

Do you have any 14.5-ounce cans of Swanson chicken broth around the house? You might have a strange but tasty surprise in store once you open up the can. Thanks to a mixup at the factory, 80 cases of cans labeled “Swanson broth” are actually Spaghetti-Os with meatballs. Campbell’s has warned customers not to eat the surprise pasta, which makes us sad.

I never got the whole SpaghettiOs thing. It always kinda tasted like noodles in ketchup to me. And now I’m quite thankful I’m not a fan, because Campbell Soup Co. has issued a recall for 15 million pounds worth of SpaghettiOs products do to the presence of undercooked meat in the canned pastas.
