Rapid Product Recall

Three different meat and dairy products produced by three separate companies are recalled in one week.

Recently, ConAgra Foods Inc. recalled more than 800,000 packages of Marie Callender Cheesy Chicken and Rice frozen meals after US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials announced that the product had been linked to a salmonella outbreak. On June 19, Italian authorities seized possession of 70,000 mozzarella balls after consumers who purchased containers of it watched it turn blue after being taken out of its packaging. So far, it is unknown why the product is turning colors, and the Italian government refuses to release the brand name. One day earlier, on June 18, Campbell Soup Co. recalled 15 million pounds of Spaghetti-Os with meatballs due to concerns that the meat had been undercooked due to a processing malfunction.
