A Pennsylvania-based company has recalled nearly 3,000 pounds of Chef Boyardee products because they were labeled as chicken and rice but are beef ravioli.
Conagra Brands, Inc., said Saturday it was pulling 2,871 pounds of 7.5 oz. canned microwavable Chef Boyardee bowls because of the misbranding. The products may also contain some allergens -- milk and wheat -- not represented on the label.
The affected products were shipped to retail locations in New York, Florida and Kentucky, officials say. Multiple consumers complained, which is how the issues were discovered; there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions.
Anyone who has purchased the affected bowls is advised to throw them out or return to them to the place of purchase.
Consumers with questions about the recall can reach out to Danielle Richardson, Conagra's manager of quality, at 1-800-921-7404.
