A ConAgra recall is targeting more than 700,000 pounds of spaghetti and meatball products canned under six labels because of misbranding and undeclared allergens. The culprit? Errant bread crumbs.

U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said the products contain milk, a known allergen, which was not on the labeling.

Two to three percent of children younger than three are allergic to milk, which could lead to hives, vomiting and a rare life-threating reaction, according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology website.

The products were made on Jan. 5 and Jan. 12, said the USDA. The products, all in 14.75-ounce cans, include:

*Libby's Spaghetti and Meatballs made with Pork, Chicken and Beef in Tomato Sauce, with the package code 2100701200 with the Use By Date Jan. 2, 2019.

*Del Pino's Spaghetti & Meatballs Made with Pork, Chicken and Beef in Tomato Sauce, with the package code 2100701200 and the Use By Date Jan. 2, 2019.

*Hy-Top Spaghetti and Meatballs Made with Pork, Chicken and Beef in Tomato Sauce, with the package code 2100701200 and the Use By Date Jan. 2, 2019.

*Food Hold Spaghetti & Meatballs Made with Pork, Chicken and Beef in Tomato Sauce, with the package code 2100701200 and the Use By Date Jan. 2, 2019.

*Essential Everyday Spaghetti with Meatballs Made With Pork, Chicken and Beef in Tomato Sauce, with the package code 2100701200 and the Use By Date Jan. 2, 2019.

*Chef Boyardee Mini Pasta Shells & Meatballs, Pasta and Meatballs made with Pork, Chicken and Beef in Tomato Sauce, with the package code 2100700500 and the Use By Date
Dec. 26, 2018.

The USDA said the labeling problem was found June 6 when the company received notification from an ingredient supplier that the bread crumbs the company received and used in the recalled products potentially contained undeclared milk.

The Miami Herald reported that milk omissions led to a Class I recall designation, described by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as "a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death."
