WASHINGTON — An Idaho company is recalling about 6,200 cans of soup that are mislabeled as cans of beans.

The Agriculture Department said Monday the mislabeled soup produced by Chiquita Processed Foods LLC, of Payette, will not cause health problems if eaten.

Soups mislabeled as 15.5-ounce cans of "S&W Garbanzo Beans" actually contain 14.5 ounces of "Wolfgang Puck's Chicken Parmesan with Pasta Hearty Soup." These recalled cans have package code 978P8/C306 and establishment code P6166 on top of each can. Soups mislabeled as 15-ounce cans of "S&W Pinto Beans" actually contain 14.5 ounces of "Wolfgang Puck's Grilled Chicken with Rice Hearty Soup." These cans have package code 897P8/C263 and establishment code P6166.

The recalled soups were distributed in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington state.

Consumers with questions about the soup can call the government toll-free line, 1-800-535-4555, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST Monday through Friday.
