Hunt's chili recalled nationwide over salmonella fears
Conagra Brands Inc. announced a voluntary recall of select Hunt's Chili Kits on Monday after learning the seasoning packets may be contaminated with salmonella, according to the FDA.
Although no traces of the pathogen were found in any of the finished products, the company decided to issue a recall "out of an abundance of caution."
The 44.8-ounce kits in the affected lot have "best by" dates in 2018 (April 4, April 5 and May 1) and product codes 3534619500, 3534619600 and 3534622200 stamped above the expiration date.

The company says that no illnesses from their product have been reported thus far.
If you do happen to find one of the potentially-tainted chili kits in your pantry, Conagra asks you either throw it away or bring it back to your place of purchase for a full refund.
