WASHINGTON — Foodmaker Conagra Brands, Inc. has recalled more than 700,000 pounds of cans of spaghetti and meatball products because it might contain milk, an allergen not listed on the product labels.

Brands affected include Chef Boyardee, Libby’s and other popular pasta product brands due to the “misbranding and undeclared allergens.”

The recalled products were produced from January 5 to January 12, 2017, and were distributed nationwide to warehouses and retail locations, according to the USDA.

The recall affects 14.75-ounce cans of the following products:

  • Libby’s Spaghetti and Meatballs with package code 2100701200 and use by date Jan. 2, 2019.

Conagra says the problem was discovered on June 6 when the company received a notice from an ingredient supplier saying the bread crumbs used in the products potentially contained undeclared milk.

There have been no reported illnesses, according to Conagra.
