The products being recalled are 18.6 oz. cans of "Campbell’s Select, Ready

are packed eight to a carton in a cardboard wrap. Each carton contains four
cans of the recalled product and four cans of a chicken product that is not

Each label is stamped with the identification codes, "51000 14909" under the
bar code and "15699" located next to the bar code. The lid of each can is
stamped with the establishment code "EST4D" and a date code of "12112."
The product was produced on Dec. 11, 2002, and was distributed to Costco

"We urge consumers to check their cabinets," said Dr. Garry McKee, FSIS
administrator. "Consumers who are allergic to cheese products should not eat
this product but should return it to the place of purchase".
