Cans of recalled food have been bursting, swollen with bacteria that cause Botulism.
The bursting cans are among those being held by Castleberry's food company, which last week announced a massive recall that now includes more than 90 potentially contaminated products, including chili sauces and dog foods.
The news about the bursting cans gives new urgency to warnings from federal health officials to get rid of the recalled cans from pantries and store shelves.
According to figures provided to the Associated Press, the Food and Drug Administration has found recalled products for sale in roughly 250 of the more than 3700 stores visited in nationwide checks.
FDA investigators believe Castleberry's failed to properly cook some or all the products.
