Vienna sausages recall: Throw away these cans from your pantry

Conagra Brands canned meat recall

Conagra Brands has recalled 2.6 million cans of meats, including Armour Star Vienna sausage, that may be contaminated. The company discovered cans in its warehouse were "spoiled and/or leaking," according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.


Conagra Brands has recalled more than 2.6 million pounds of its canned meat and poultry products, including Vienna sausages, because its damaged packaging may allow the food to be contaminated, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

No illnesses have been reported as a result of this recall to date. But the FSIS is urging consumers not to eat these products and throw away or return them to their place of purchase.

Conagra Brands produced the recalled meats between Dec. 12, 2022 and Jan. 13, 2023 and shipped them to retail stores nationwide.

The affected cans also have the code “P4247″ inscribed on the bottom of the can near the “best by” date.

Conagra Brands discovered the problem when it noticed “spoiled and/or leaking cans from multiple production dates” at its warehouse, according to the agency.

The company saw that the cans were damaged in a way that could allow foodborne bacteria to get in and contaminate the meat. However, it’s not easy for customers to see the damage.
