Just a few days ago, a recall went out for four pasta dishes that were distributed by Valley Fine Foods. These frozen pasta meals have been giving customers much more than they bargained for.

These products might have been adulterated due to the presence of spoilage organisms that means it is no longer considered fit for human consumption. This is a class two recall meaning it a serious health hazard situation that could cause adverse consequences in regards to the health of those who consume these products.

The FSIS/USDA website says the recall consists of the following products:
