(Washington-AP) -- Hormel Foods is recalling about 104,000 pounds of Stagg canned chili from stores in 16 states including Utah because it may contain plastic and other material.
The Agriculture Department says the pieces of plastic came from a calculator.
The chili was made on November 24th 2003 and distributed to retail stores in Arizona, California, Colorado, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Utah and Wisconsin.
The chili was sold in 15-ounce cans labeled, "Stagg Chili, Steak House Reserve, Chili with Beans, Hearty Beef with a Kick of Green Chilies." The cans were sold six to a case.
The cans and cases bear product codes are "S112434," "S112435" and "S112436." They also are marked "Est. 199C" inside the USDA inspection mark.
