Specific 8-ounce cans of Hunt’s Tomato Sauce are being voluntarily recalled by ConAgra Foods for a defect in the inner lining of the cans.
The company says there is no food-safety concern associated with either the regular or no salt added versions of the product being recalled. However, the defect may cause the can to swell and the product to spurt out when opened, according to the Nebraska-based company.
Cans of the sauce were shipped to distributors and stores in Hawaii, Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming, and ConAgra is working to coordinate their removal from store shelves.
Customers should inspect cans at home for the following “Best By” dates to arrange for replacements:
Hunt’s Tomato Sauce (8-ounce cans): July 23, 2014; July 24 2014; Aug. 29 2014; Aug. 30 2014, or Oct. 08 2014.
