The US Agriculture Department notes that so far there has been no illness reported. However, under-processing of food can have a negative impact on health—especially among children. Campbell Soup Co. said in a statement that it decided to recall the products "in an abundance of caution." The company stated that as of early this morning, there was "no information indicating that any under-processed product has reached consumers."

The company stated that the product should be returned to the point of purchase for an exchange or a full refund. However, it would be useful for anyone who may have become ill from eating the allegedly under-processed food to retain the recalled product in the event a lawsuit becomes a preferred response.
The company discovered the potential for under-processing during a routine warehouse inspection and investigation, according to a statement from the Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Campbell Soup Co. says the cans at issue were produced in Paris, Texas between December 2008 and June 2010, and were shipped to retail customers nationwide.
