Conagra Brands, Inc. is recalling roughly 2,581,816 pounds of canned meat and poultry products.

Why?

The products may have been contaminated because of a packaging defect, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

According to the report,

"The problem was discovered when the establishment notified FSIS after observing spoiled and/or leaking cans from multiple production dates at the establishment’s warehouse."

All products with the establishment number "P4247" have been recalled but were, unfortunately, shipped to retail locations nationwide.

"FSIS is concerned that some product may be on retail shelves or in consumers’ pantries. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase."
