Food Bank Warns Donated Chili Could Be Contaminated

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio food bank is warning that about 296-thousand cans of chili that may be contaminated has been distributed to low-income families across the state.

The Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks says it has ceased distribution of the chili. But it's warning people who have received the cans that they're subject to a national recall and may be contaminated with bacteria that can cause botulism.

Second Harvest had been unaware of the recall until the manufacturer informed the association today.

The product was produced by Castleberry and labeled as Morton House Chili with Beans.
