The D.C. Department of Health has issued a health alert following a voluntary recall by the Campbell Soup Company of more than 72,000 cans of its Chunky soup.
The recall involves cans of Chunky Baked Potato with Cheddar and Bacon Bits. And not just ’cause this soup takes like shit. The soup is extra super chunky and may contain of hard plastic “that presents a choking hazard and could cause injury if swallowed,” according to the alert. So far three consumers have reported minor injuries “in and around their mouths.”
No word yet on how the plastic got into the soup, or how Campbell manages to sell 72,000 cans of this stuff when there’s no hard plastic in the recipe.
