ConAgra Foods has voluntarily initiated a recall for 8-ounce cans of Hunts Tomato Sauce because of problems related to the can packaging.

The recall affects both the regular variety and no-salt added sauces, the Omaha, Neb.-based company said Thursday.

The affected cans contain a defect in the inner lining. Although no food safety concerns are associated with the product, the defect may cause the can to swell and the product to spurt out when opened, the company said.

The product was shipped to U.S. retail food stores and distributors in Hawaii, Arizona, California,  Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. ConAgra Foods is working with retail customers and distributors to ensure these cans are removed from store shelves.

The recalled cans contain the following “Best by” dates:


Hunt’s Tomato Sauce:

  • JUL 23 2014
  • JUL 24 2014
  • AUG 29 2014
  • AUG 30 2014
  • OCT 08 2014

Hunt’s Tomato Sauce No Salt Added :

  • JUL 23 2014
  • AUG 29 2014
  • OCT 07 2014
  • OCT 08 2014

ConAgra Foods is advising consumers who have purchased either of these products with the Best By dates shown above to call 866-511-7752 to ask any questions, or to arrange for a replacement.
