Food products were recalled last week and early this week due to lack of inspection, salmonella contamination and foreign objects, among other reasons.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced last week that BCI Foods Inc. is recalling about 3,304 pounds of meat and poultry soup products that were not presented for import re-inspection.
The soup items were imported on July 17 and do not bear the USDA mark of inspection, just Canada’s establishment number and mark. The items were shipped to Aldi stores in Pennsylvania and New York.
The affected products are 19-ounce cans of Chef’s Cupboard Classic Homestyle Chicken & Wild Rice, and Italian-Style Wedding, as well as 18.8-ounce cans of Chunky Beef with Country Vegetables, and Sirloin Burger with Country Vegetables.
The problem was discovered during routine monitoring activities, and there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the soups. Consumers should return them to the place of purchase.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration also announced a number of recalls, including Conagra Brands’ Udi’s Classic Hamburger Buns.
The buns are being recalled due to the potential presence of small pieces of white plastic. The FDA said the issue occurred when a dough scraper was inadvertently incorporated into the production process.

The FDA said there have been no reports of injuries due to consumption. Consumers should throw out the buns or return them to the store where it was purchased.
