One Product in Colorado Has Been Recalled: What You Need to Know

SPAM is typically processed heavily. Sometimes even criticised being being too processed. The USDA just issued a public warning and recall across the country because a shipment of SPAM is underprocessed.
Here Is What Underproccessed Means
When you open a can of SPAM, the meat is ready to consume. If you want to open a can of SPAM and eat it with a fork, although you will probably be judged for it, you will be fine.
However, with this recall, you will not be able to consume SPAM right out of the can because the product was not pre-cooked enough.
