The owner of Chef Boyardee, Conagra Brands, Inc., is recalling more than 700,000 pounds of spaghetti and meatball products due to misbranding, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Friday.

The recall includes six different products, listed here. The company was notified earlier this week that bread crumbs in the recalled products included milk – an allergen not declared on the products’ labeling.

Conagra’s recall is categorized as Class I – the most severe possible, with a high health risk.

The most notable product impacted is “Chef Boyardee Mini pasta shells & meatballs, Pasta and Meatballs made with Pork, Chicken and Beef in Tomato Sauce,” with 414,424 pounds recalled.

There have been no confirmed reports of injury or illness from the products, but consumers who have bought them are urged to throw them away. More information about USDA food recalls can be found here.
