Campbell's Soup has issued a recall for SpaghettiOs with meatballs over concerns the product was not properly processed -- potentially allowing bacteria to grow inside and cause spoilage.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said 15 million pounds of the canned meal are subject to the recall.

The following 14.75-ounce cans are involved in the recall:

  • SpaghettiOs with Meatballs, with the product code "U5" on the bottom

  • SpaghettiOs A to Z with Meatballs with the code "4N" on the bottom

  • SpaghettiOs Fun Shapes with Meatballs (Cars) with the product code "KS" on the bottom

The cans were made between December 2008 and June 2010 and have use-by dates of June 2010 to December 2011 on the bottom, the USDA said.

If you have any of the cans, return them to the place of purchase for a refund.

The USDA said Campbell's learned of the problem during a routine inspection of a warehouse. No illnesses have been reported connected to the SpaghettiOs products that are being recalled.
