A variety of select cans of Chef's Cupboard soups are being recalled by the Canadian manufacturer BCI Foods.  Approximately 3,304 pounds of meat and poultry soup products are involved.  The brand is available at Aldi locations.

The reason for the recall is that the food product was not presented for import re-inspection.  As such, the products subject to recall do not bear the USDA mark of inspection, but bear Canada’s establishment number “142” within the Canadian mark of inspection.

Here is a run-down of which specific Chef's Cupboard soups are involved in the recall:

  • 19-oz cans containing “Chef’s Cupboard CLASSIC HOMESTYLE CHICKEN & WILD RICE” with a “BB/MA 2021 MR 04” date and code “EST 142 602 19 064” on the bottom of the cans.
  • 19-oz. cans containing “Chef’s Cupboard CLASSIC HOMESTYLE ITALIAN-STYLE WEDDING with Meatballs & Chicken” with a “BB/MA 2021 MR 03” date and code “EST 142 603 19 063” on the bottom of the cans.
  • 18.8-oz. cans containing “Chef’s Cupboard CHUNKY BEEF with COUNTRY VEGETABLES” with a “BB/MA 2020 SE 25” date and code “EST 142 613 18 269” on the bottom of the cans.
  • 18.8-oz. cans containing “Chef’s Cupboard CHUNKY SIRLOIN BURGER with COUNTRY VEGETABLES” with a “BB/MA 2021 FE 18” date and code “EST 142 614 19 049” on the bottom of the cans.

At the present time, there have been no reports of illness or any medical complications involved with the recalled products.  The USDA recommends not consuming the soup, and recommends returning the product to the store where it was bought.
