WASHINGTON -- Two popular grocery items are being pulled off the shelves -- SpaghettiOs that weren't adequately heated during processing, and Marie Callender frozen dinners that pose a salmonella risk.
The Department of Agriculture announced both recalls late Thursday. ConAgra Foods is recalling all Marie Callender's brand cheesy chicken and rice frozen meals after they possibly were linked to a salmonella outbreak in 14 states.
And Campbell Soup Co. is recalling 15 million pounds of SpaghettiOs with meatballs after a cooker malfunctioned at one of the company's plants in Texas.
ConAgra is recalling all of the meals labeled "Marie Callender's Cheesy Chicken and Rice White Meat Chicken and Broccoli over Rice Topped with Rich Cheddar Sauce," regardless of production date.
