If you have Spam in your house, check your cupboard asap.
Hornel, the Minnesota distributor of Spam just recalled 228,000 pounds of the popular canned meat.
Why? People have been finding sharp metal objects in their cans!
Thankfully, no one has been majorly hurt. Only minor oral injuries have been reported.
Are all Spams being recalled?
Not at all. The list of recall includes:
- 12-oz. metal cans containing “SPAM Classic” with a “Best By” February 2021 date and production codes: F020881, F020882, F020883, F020884, F020885, F020886, F020887, F020888 and F020889. These products were shipped throughout the United States.
- 12-oz. metal cans containing “Hormel Foods Black-Label Luncheon Loaf” with a “Best By” February 2021 date and production codes F02098 and F02108. These products were shipped to Guam only.
To stay on the safe side, check your shelves, read the labels, and look for the ‘best by’ date on the can.
If you’ve bought your product at Costco Wholesale, Sam’s Club, or BJ’s Wholesale Club stores, don’t worry. Those are safe and not recalled. 12 oz cans are also safe.
For more information, you can check with Hornel’s website.
