Lazy cooks beware: a whole bunch of Chef Boyardee and other canned spaghetti products were recalled on Friday, following the news that they contain a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.

The allergen itself could be benign to some — it’s milk. On June 6, Chef Boyardee’s parent company Conagra Brands, Inc. was notified by an ingredient supplier that the bread crumbs used in a number of its products potentially contained undeclared milk.

“Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase,” a USDA news release states.

In total, over 700,000 pounds of meatball-filled products produced on Jan. 5, 2017, and Jan. 12, 2017, have been recalled. They include:
