GOOD canned soup PROGRESSO

  1. We had a sale of progresso soup for $1.00 a can and it is REALLY excellent. I love homemade soups and this is about as close as you can get. Just thought I would mention it. This is the first time I have had it. Its so much better than campbells or store brands.

    I LOVE Progresso soup when I just don't have it in me to make a pot of homemade soup. My absolutely favorite is the tomato basil! YUM-O! I like making a mozarella grilled cheese with it --- just perfect!

    is probably the best of all the canned soups. I usually make my own soups, but if I have to buy canned, Progresso's the only one I will buy. A really tasty meal--take one or two cans of the lentil soup, after you heat it up, lift the lentils out with a slotted spoon and place on top of some cooked pasta. Dust with parmesan. Delicious!!!

    They don't over-salt it the way that some other brands of heat and eat soup do. you can actually see the pieces of meat without having to get out a magnifying glass to find them.
  6. Yes the clam chowder is so good, and the chicken corn chowder is great, love the chicken noodle. Those are the ones so far I have tried. Of course if you have the energy too make homemade those would be better I am sure.

    I would love to make a vegetable beef homemade soup, if I had a good recipe.

    Hartford (WTNH) _ Food inspectors will be checking stores statewide to ensure that Progresso Italian Wedding Soup are removed from the shelves. General Mills has recalled this product because it may contain beef produced by Hallmark/Westland Meat Packing Co. -- which initiated a beef recall on February 17th.

    "Families should check their cabinets for this widely-distributed, popular product, and return unopened cans to the store for a full refund," Consumer Protection Commissioner Jerry Farrell, Jr. said. "Anyone who has open cans or 'bowls' subject to the recall should throw the containers and food away."

    To date, no illnesses have been reported. However, consumers should not consume these products even if they appear to be normal. This recall is classified as Class II which means there is a remote probability that the recalled beef would cause adverse health effects upon consumption.

    Specific codes of the soup subject to recall are:

    - 18.5 oz. cans of Progresso Italian Wedding Soup, "Best if Used By" dates from 12OCT9 to 08NOV9, UPC#41196-91505, CODE: 22511, GROUP: 1286

    - 15.25 oz. Microwave Bowl of Progresso Italian Wedding Soup, "Best if Used By" dates from 12OCT9 to 08NOV9, UPC#41196-403339, CODE: 1131, GROUP: 1286

    For more information, please call General Mills at 1-800-200-9377, the FDA at 1-888-SAFEFOOD or the Department of Consumer Protection at (860) 713-6160.

    The recall came about as a result of improper slaughtering practices -- they were slaughtering and processing downed animals. There was no disease found just inhumane and improper practices.

    Didn't want anyone to panic.

    For the recall notice on this soup. I didn't know that.

    I made my own soup today with leftover roast beef, broth, carrots and potatoes. I added some more key ingredients and VIOLA! Came out well.
