BCI Foods Recalls Soups Sold at Aldi Stores in Pennsylvania and New York

Four varieties of Chef’s Cupboard brand soups sold at Aldi stores in Pennsylvania and New York are being recalled by BCI Foods, Inc., of Canada. The food was not inspected when it was brought into the United States from Canada, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Aldi US is not conducting the recall. The recall is through BCI Foods, Inc. The items were imported on July 17, 2019.

According to the USDA, the recalled soups are:

  • 19-oz. cans of Chef’s Cupboard Classic Homestyle Chicken & Wild Rice with a “BB/MA 2021 MR 04” date and code “EST 142 602 19 064” on the bottom of the cans.
  • 19-oz. cans of Chef’s Cupboard Classic Homestyle Italian-Style Wedding with Meatballs and Chicken with a “BB/MA 2021 MR 03” date and code “EST 142 603 19 063” on the bottom of the cans.

According to the USDA, the soups do not have a USDA mark of inspection, but they do have Canada’s establishment number “142” within a Canadian inspection mark.

The USDA says there have been no confirmed reports of anyone getting sick.

Customers in the affected states should return the soups to Aldi or throw them away.

The USDA’s website states customers with questions can contact John St. Germain, Vice President of Sales at BCI Foods Inc., at (416) 882-3513.
