Soup is some of the most popular meal choices for millions of people around the globe. Soup is just a classic food that always seems to bring a smile to the face of the person eating it.

One of the most famous soup brands is the popular Chef Boyardee soup. However, fans of the famous food are sure to be in for a surprise after a labeling mix-up prompted a massive recall. According to reports, thousands of pounds of the famous soup was mistakenly labeled.

"The company behind the popular 'Chef Boyardee' food brand has issued a recall for over 2,800 pounds of its chicken and rice products over a labeling mix-up that could lead to consumption of potential allergens. Conagra Brands, Inc., said the affected products are labeled and marketed as a chicken and rice-based product, but actually contain beef ravioli," reported Fox News.

The affected products were packaged and produced on January 16, 2019. They include the 7.5 ounce canned microwavable bowls. These are some of the most popular products since they're easy to heat and serve. The items have a package code of 210090151050045L, a best by date of July 8, 2020, and were shipped to Florida, Kentucky and New York.

"The company said they were alerted to the problem after consumers complained of opening up the product labeled as 'rice with chicken & vegetables,' only to discover beef ravioli. While no adverse effects have been reported, the impacted products may contain milk and wheat, which is not declared on the label, wrote Fox.

If you think you have some of the soup in this recall you are urged to contact Conagra’s manager of quality at (800)921-7404, or to the Food Safety and Inspection Service website.
