Wal-Mart Statement On Castleberry's Food Company Recall

Food safety is always a top priority at Wal-Mart. Great Value branded food products in the U.S. are not manufactured by Castleberry’s Food Company in Augusta, Georgia, and are not impacted by the recent U.S. recalls. Great Value Canada, however, was impacted by Castleberry’s Food Company voluntary recall on July 21.

Following Castleberry’s Food Company’s recall of select chili products on July 18, Wal-Mart immediately blocked the sale of the following items at our registers and immediately directed stores to pull the product off shelves:

Bunker Hill Chili No Beans (10 oz),

Castleberry’s Hot Dog Chili Sauce (10 oz),

Austex hot Dog Chili Sauce (10 oz),

Castleberry’s Chili with Beans (15 oz) and

Castleberry’s Barbeque Pork (10 oz).

Other products included in Castleberry’s July 19 voluntary recall were not carried in Wal-Mart stores.

As an additional precautionary measure, on Friday, July 20, Wal-Mart proactively instructed all of our stores to have all offerings from Castelberry’s Augusta, GA plant – even those that are not impacted by this recall – immediately removed from our shelves and blocked from sale at our registers. We will only resume sales when we are convinced that all quality issues have been resolved. Our customers expect nothing less.

Wal-Mart’s U.S. stores carried the following products which were specified in the FDA’s updated recall on July 21. Other products included in Castleberry’s July 21 voluntary recall were not carried in Wal-Mart’s U.S. stores.
