Two canned soups
12 Grocery Store Canned Soups We May Never Eat Again
1. Birria-Inspired Beef
In December 2023, some cans of Whole Foods' birria-inspired beef soup were mistakenly filled with a plant-based chicken soup containing sesame.
Whole Foods pulled the Mexican-inspired soup from shelves and has not been back since, but this change may only be temporary.
2. Chicken Pot Pie Soup
Hanover Soup Classics Chicken Pot Pie was a rich, creamy chicken soup with thick noodles, but in October 2023, Hanover recalled 15,000 pounds of the soup.
Hanover recalled the soup because the chicken contained soy, a potential allergen for some. As of February 2024, it has not yet returned to the shelves.
3. Pepper Pot Soup
Pepper pot soup is a hearty stew made of beef, vegetables, whole peppercorns, and other seasonings, and Campbell’s used to offer a convenient canned version.
The soup was popular in the 18th and 19th centuries, a tradition Campbell's continued for another hundred years until the company decided to discontinue its canned version in 2010.
4. Broccoli Cheddar Soup
Trader Joe's Unexpected Broccoli Cheddar Soup was arguably one of their best soups, with sharp cheddar and Parmesan cheeses as a creamy base for broccoli.
However, in July 2023, Trader Joe’s recalled a batch of the soup fearing it contained insects, and while the recall was the right thing to do, customers are likely still wary.
5. Heinz Beef Soup
Heinz Beef Soup was a simple yet beloved option, but unfortunately, despite its popularity, Heinz discontinued the soup in the early 2000s.
Despite being discontinued, the soup retains a loyal following with the "Bring Back Heinz Beef Soup" Facebook page garnering over 700 members.
