Hormel Foods is recalling some 104,000 pounds of Stagg canned chili from stores in 16 states because it may contain plastic and other material. The Agriculture Department says the pieces of plastic came from a calculator.

Hormel, which owns Stagg Foods, issued the recall after getting complaints from consumers. No injuries have been reported. The chili was made last November 24 and sold in 15-ounce cans labeled "Stagg Chili, Steak House Reserve, Chili with Beans, Hearty Beef with a Kick of Green Chilies." The cans were sold six to a case.

Kroger recalls roast beef from stores in 20 states

The Kroger Company is recalling Private Selection brand roast beef from its stores in 20 states. The grocery chain says a sample taken from a Kroger delicatessen counter in Atlanta tested positive for a bacteria that can cause sickness and in some cases, death.

Officials say the sample taken by the Georgia Department of Agriculture tested positive for listeria. It's unclear when the sample was taken. Eating contaminated foods can cause high fever, severe headaches, neck stiffness, abdominal pain, nausea and diarrhea. It may be more serious or even fatal among young children, frail or elderly people, or those with weak immune systems.

Kroger says those who bought the product this month and who have it in their refrigerators should return it to the store for a refund.
