Conagra Brands has recalled nearly 2.6 million pounds of its canned Vienna sausage and chicken products because of packaging issues that could cause contamination without consumers realizing it, per the NY Post.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service confirmed Tuesday that products manufactured between Dec. 12, 2022, and Jan. 13, 2023, from brands including Goya, Kroger and Great Value may have damaged cans that could cause foodborne pathogens to enter.

“The cans subject to recall may have been damaged in a manner that is not readily apparent to consumers, which may allow foodborne pathogens to enter the cans,”

the USDA said in a statement.

The government is asking customers who’ve recently purchased such items to check cans for a lot number, P4247. Several of those can products have already been shipped to retail stores nationwide and fall under the recall.

The agency also announced Tuesday that they have not received any reports of illness from the recall but explained that symptoms of eating contaminated meat may come days later. Those symptoms may include, vomiting, nausea, headaches, diarrhea, and stomach cramps, reports note.
