MILWAUKEE — Hormel Food Corp., is recalling approximately 228,614 pounds of canned pork and chicken products because it could contain pieces of metal.
According the USDA, the canned pork and chicken products were produced on February 8 through February 10, 2018.
The following products are subject to recall:
