Pay attention to this recall – Armour Chili with Beans is labeled “gluten-free” but actually contains wheat.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 (UPI) — The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall of more than 91,000 pounds of Armour-brand canned chili with beans due to a labeling error.

ArmourchiliThe FSIS said the Pinnacle Foods Group LLC of Fort Madison, Iowa, initiated the recall because the canned chili was inadvertently packaged with a plastic over-wrap that declared the product “gluten free” when it actually contains wheat. Officials said wheat is a potential allergen and poses a heath risk for people allergic to the ingredient.

Being recalled are cases containing six 15-ounce cans of “ARMOUR Chili with Beans, Original” that were distributed to retail stores in Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia and West Virginia.

Customers with questions can contact the company at 800-253-5882.
