Chef Boyardee Recalls 3,000 Pounds Of Microwaveable Meals

Yikes! Check your pantry.

If you’ve recently purchased any Chef Boyardee microwaveable bowls, you’ll want to pay attention to the following news: Conagra, the parent company of Chef Boyardee, has recalled almost 3,000 pounds of microwaveable bowls due to mislabeling.

The products in question are 7.5-ounce canned microwaveable bowls. The labels on these products indicate that they have rice with chicken and vegetables inside of them. However, they actually contain beef ravioli, which means the bowls have milk and wheat ingredients, which some people may be allergic to — not to mention they are made with an entirely different kind of meat.

Here’s what these bowls look like:

Although there have been no reports of illness due to the mislabeled products, if you own any of these bowls with a best-by date of July 8, 2020, and the number “EST. 794” on the bottom, it’s recommended that you throw them away or take them back to the store where you bought them for a refund. While sold across the U.S., the recalled batch of products was reportedly shipped to locations in New York, Florida and Kentucky.

This isn’t the only recall to occur recently due to improper labeling of allergens. Nature’s Path had to recall 400,000 boxes of gluten-free EnviroKidz kids cereal because they contained, of all things, gluten. Pillsbury issued a voluntarily recall of its Unbleached All-Purposeose Flour products this week over concerns they might be contaminated with salmonella.
