Campbell said the cans are labeled Swanson 100% Natural Chicken Broth. Because of the labeling error, consumers may not know the foods contain wheat, milk, and soy, which are allergens.


And when they open the can, consumers might not notice that SpaghettiOs with meatballs doesn't look like chicken broth.

One of those things I loved as a kid but seems gut wrenching to think of eating as an adult.

The thought of somebody pouring an entire can all over some crock pot chicken just has me giggling

SpaghettiOs are a particularly vile concoction.

I'll never understand how my older brother still eats Spaghetti-Os on the regular. He loves it.

This recall us more about preventing frivolous lawsuits that a true health risk.

Do Spaghetti-Ohs still taste like soap?

I still, on a rare occasion, will eat Spaghetti-O's with Meatballs. The meatballs don't even taste like meat, but there's something about it that is delicious.

Ever since I was a kid I used to add a dozen coarse grinds from the pepper mill to the pot while it's heating. That's probably why they are one of my few childhood trash/comfort foods that I still like. Mrs Clam can't stand the smell of them, so I almost only have them when she's out. Mmmmm. Spaghetti-Os and a big glass of milk.

I haven't had them since I was a kid, but the article made me hungry.  I wonder if I'd still like them.

I'm certainly not going to run out and buy any.

My Secret Shame is still Ragu Classic over Creamettes elbow macaroni.  Sometimes you just have to have it.

Let me put your mind to rest.  I too wondered this once and decided to act on it so I went and bought a can and ate it.  I assure you, you would not like them.  They are disgusting, a tomato sauce that tastes like watered down ketchup, soggy noodles with no texture or flavor and worst of all the meatballs that are so horrid I can't even describe them.

I'm not sure how or why I was able to eat them with such relish as a child.

That's the seasoned salt and whale sperm.

I'M JUST KIDDING!

there's no seasoned salt.

At some point, specifically in a college cafeteria, I realized that I'd outgrown Spaghetti-Os in favor of Chef Boyardee Dinosaur Pasta. Some brilliant cafeteria cook had topped it with cheese (mozzarella and possibly parmesan), baked it in individual dishes, and served it that way.

For mediocre canned pasta, it's surprisingly good comfort food.

/And now I'm hungry...

Occasionally I get a craving for Chef Boy-Ar-Dee meat ravioli, and spend a buck on a little microwaveable cup of the stuff.

I think it happens when I have a sodium deficiency.

Have you met some of your countrymen and women?

On Aug. 7, the cases were shipped to a distribution center that serves Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Yeah.. They're all on the shelves by now..

Subby here, after getting about one greenlight a year for the past decade, I've had two greenlights in 24 hours!

I celebrated this accomplishment at lunch today with my first can of Spaghetti-Os in 30 years.

They were just as awful as I remembered.

Getting a couple of Fark greenlights warrants a celebration?
You may want to rethink your priorities.  ;)

The grocery store was selling non meatball Spaghettios for a dollar a large can awhile back. So disgusting. On the other hand, I still love Beefaroni even though I rarely get it for health reasons.

Well, yeah. Almost all recalls are about lawsuit prevention.

Store-brand "spaghetti rings with meatballs" right out of the can, no heating necessary.
