Pinnacle Foods, Inc. has issued a recall for approximately 549,539 pounds of chili products due to misbranding, according to USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products contain Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), which is not declared on the product label.
The Armour Chili items were produced on various dates in September 2015 and November 2015. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 2AD” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
Pinnacle discovered the problem when it received new product labels that no longer listed MSG. However, the firm continued to use their old seasoning on products, which does contain MSG. Upon discovery of the discrepancy, all affected product within the firm’s control was placed on hold.
