Hormel Foods Corp. has recalled 40 cases of Dinty Moore canned beef stew.

A Hormel spokesman told the Minneapolis Star Tribune the recall of 450 pounds of canned stew came after pieces of a broken flashlight were found near a production line during a routine inspection.

The Hormel-owned company voluntarily recalled the stew for fear it had been contaminated.
