Hunt’s Just Announced a Recall of Tomato Paste That Might Contain Mold
Check your pantry before you start dinner!
If you’re planning to make lasagna tonight, make sure you double-check your tomato paste before getting started. Conagra Brands just announced a voluntary recall of Hunt’s No Salt Added Tomato Paste, because the product may have been damaged after the canning process and could potentially have mold.
The only product included in the recall is Hunt’s No Salt Added Tomato Paste in six-ounce cans, with a “best by” date of October 16, 2020. You can also look for the item UPC 00-0-27000-38807-5 (which should be along the barcode), the case batch lot code 5291902510, and the item batch lot code 2105902510 (which should be stamped on the bottom of the can).
The products included in the recall were distributed nationwide, so make you double-check any tomato paste you have in your pantry. Since the cans might contain mold, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is advising consumers to throw out or return any cans they have that are included in the recall. Conagra Brands is also working with retailers to ensure all the cans included in the recall are removed from shelves.
