Giant Eagle Recalls Canned Pumpkin

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — An important consumer warning for you tonight could affect a lot of Thanksgiving dinners.

Giant Eagle has recalled two brands of canned pumpkin – Valu-Time canned pumpkin sold on or after August 30 and all Food Club canned pumpkin sold on or after October 28. They are produced by Topco Associates, LLC.

Giant Eagle says there is no immediate health concern, but the product does not meet quality standards and should not be eaten.

“Customers are invited to receive a full refund, complimentary pie, or replacement ingredients, from any area Giant Eagle, Inc. supermarket,” Giant Eagle said in a statement.

Giant Eagle says it is working with its national supplier to investigate further.

    Both of these recalled items in my local Market District were products of China. That’s why I purchased Libby Pumpkin.

    So right SLS!!!

    I, too, only purchase Libby’s pumpkin. I actually called Libby’s earlier in the fall and talked to them about their pumpkin.They only process their pumpkin which they grow themselves in Morton, Illinois. I also told them that Giant Eagle was selling pumpkin that was a product of China and they were very interested in that fact. The man I spoke with said that he was going to tell his supervisor and that they would pass it along to their bosses.

    I ALWAYS read the label on food anymore. I REFUSE to buy food or candy from China.

    Beware of Giant Eagle brand apple juice. I almost bought the giant economy size one day until I saw on the bottle that it was a Product of China.

    How revolting.
