April 5, 2019 -- Check your pantry. If you’ve got a can of Hunt's Tomato Paste on the shelf, check the label. It may be part of a nationwide recall for mold.
Conagra, the company that makes Hunt’s, says it is recalling a limited number of those little 6-ounce cans because they may have been damaged after the canning process, allowing mold to grow. The company became aware of the problem after getting calls from consumers.
The affected cans have a “best by” date of Oct. 16, 2020. They also have this UPC code: 00-0-27000-38807-5. So far, no other cans or lots are affected by the recall.
If you have any of this tomato paste at home, the company says you should throw it away or return it to the store where it was purchased for a refund.
If you have questions, you can call Conagra from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 1-800-280-0301.
