Recall Warning: What Exactly Are Those Chunky Bits?

If you've purchased a can of Campbell's Chunky Baked Potato with Cheddar and Bacon Bits, you may want to look at the UPC number and make sure it wasn't one of the cans they're recalling. Don't worry, it's not due to salmonella or E.coli, or anything like that, but they are dangerous to consume as they may contain pieces of hard plastic. Campbell's is voluntarily recalling the soup as three consumers have reported minor injuries in and around the mouth.

24 states are affected by the recall: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.

The label on the recalled cans have the following info:
JUL 08 2009 CT DT - BZ - 07097

Consumers with affected cans should not eat the soup and should return it to the store where they purchased it in exchange for a full refund.

Pieces of plastic?!? Talk about mmm mmm good...

I just ate a can of this last week because I was sick and it was very good, I'm just glad it didn't have in plastic in it and I'm in Washington so seemingly was safe from the recall.

That is so gross. Once, I bought frozen spinach and ended up spitting out a marble sized chunk of metal. It looked like the top of something because it had a hole to be screwed on to something else. GROSS!

I tried that soup once. Considering how chewy and tasteless the chicken bits were, I'm surprised anyone noticed the difference. :)

All these recalls are making me want to grow my own food and slaughter my own cows and live in a barn.
