Conagra is recalling close to 3,000 pounds of Chef Boyardee microwavable bowls, which are labeled rice with chicken and vegetables but actually contain beef ravioli. As a result, the ingredients milk and wheat – both allergens – aren’t listed on the packaging.
The Chicago-based food manufacturer realized what happened after getting consumer complaints, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The recall is for 7.5-ounce canned microwavable bowls that say “Chef Boyardee rice with chicken & vegetables” on the label and have a package code of 210090151050045L, best-by date of July 8, 2020, and the establishment number “EST. 794” on the bottom.
