Hormel, the Minnesota-based distributor of Spam, has recalled 228,000 pounds of the canned meat this week after reports came in that people found sharp objects in their Spam. At least four consumers complained after they found metal objects inside of their cans.

Currently, it is reported that the consumers only received minor oral injuries due to this, but a recall was still necessary after the findings. According to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection, the canned chicken and pork that is in question was produced in February at the company’s plant in Fremont, Nebraska.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture lists the following products in the recall statement:

  • 12-oz. metal cans containing “SPAM Classic” with a “Best By” February 2021 date and production codes: F020881, F020882, F020883, F020884, F020885, F020886, F020887, F020888 and F020889. These products were shipped throughout the United States.
  • 12-oz. metal cans containing “Hormel Foods Black-Label Luncheon Loaf” with a “Best By” February 2021 date and production codes F02098 and F02108. These products were shipped to Guam only.

Customers are being urged to check their shelves and pantries to make sure they do not have any of these products at home. If you do find cans of Spam with those production codes and “best by” dates, you are supposed to either throw them away or return them to the retailer you purchased them from.

The recall does not impact Spam products that were sold at Costco Wholesale, Sam’s Club, or BJ’s Wholesale Club stores. This only impacts Spam sold in size 12 oz cans; any other side product is not involved in the recall either.
