Total numbers on the number of items being recalled have not been released. The true situation is that beef has not been labeled as having any bacteria or mad cow scare, which is typical for beef recalls, the recall is due to Hallmark / Westland Meat Packing Company in Chino, California not being completely and properly inspected by the USDA.

“Families should check their cabinets for this widely-distributed, popular product, and return unopened cans to the store for a full refund,” Consumer Protection Commissioner Jerry Farrell, Jr. said. “Anyone who has open cans or ‘bowls’ subject to the recall should throw the containers and food away.”
