FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — A limited amount of Hunt’s Chili Kits have been recalled due to the potential presence of Salmonella in the chili seasoning packet contained in the kit, according to a press release from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

The chili seasoning used in the packet originated from a supplier who informed Conagra Brands, Inc. of the potential presence of Salmonella in a raw material used in the chili seasoning.

Salmonella was not found in the finished product supplied to Conagra Brands, but the company has decided to recall the product “out of an abundance on caution.”

There have been no reports of adverse reactions or injuries due to consumption of this product to date.
