If you've recently purchased Progresso's Organic Chicken Noodle Soup, only to find meatballs and pasta once you've opened the can, you're not alone. The food giant is recalling thousands of pounds of canned soup product due to several mislabeling issues.

The recalled cans, produced by Faribault Foods Inc. on May 26 this year, have had customers complaining of several issues. For one, some of the chicken soup cans contained a pork and beef product instead of the chicken noodle soup. Upon further investigation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), some undeclared allergens—soy and dairy—were found in the cans in question, too.

The issues were discovered when the company's distributor notified the FSIS of a growing number of customer complaints reporting meatballs and pasta in chicken soup cans.

Luckily, no adverse effects were reported due to this switcheroo situation, but the FSIS does advise customers not to consume the contents of said cans if they encounter them. "These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase," the agency noted.

In case you hate surprises, you can also identify these faulty 14-ounce cans of Progresso Organic Chicken Noodle Soup by a "BestByMAY262022" date printed on the bottom of the can and a best-by date of "09JUN2022" on the product case.
