Specific Lots of Hunt's® Tomato Sauce Recalled for Can Defect11:06 EST Thursday, January 24, 2013 OMAHA, Neb. (Business Wire) -- Today, ConAgra Foods, Omaha, Neb., is voluntarily initiating a product recall for specific lots of its 8 ounce Hunt's® Tomato Sauce (regular variety) and Hunt's Tomato Sauce No Salt Added that were packaged in cans containing a defect in the inner lining. Although there is no food safety concern associated with the product, the can defect may cause the can to swell and the product to spurt out when opened. ConAgra Foods is advising consumers who have purchased either of these products from the Best By dates shown below to call 866-511-7752 to ask any questions, or to arrange for a replacement. The product was shipped to U.S. retail food stores and distributors in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. ConAgra Foods is working with retail customers and distributors to ensure these cans are removed from store shelves. This recall is limited only to 8-ounce cans of Hunt's Tomato Sauce (regular variety) and Hunt's Tomato Sauce No Salt Added bearing the following Best By dates. No other Hunt's products are impacted. Hunt's Tomato Sauce (regular variety) and Hunt's Tomato Sauce No Salt Added are packaged in 8 ounce cans with a Hunt's graphic logo on the front of the can. Consumers can find the Best By date by looking at either the top or bottom of the can.
