The USDA said the products in question were produced from Feb. 8 through Feb. 10 of this year.  

The recall includes the 12-ounce metal cans of Hormel “Spam Classic” with a best-by date of Feb. 20-21 and the 12-ounce metal can of “Hormel Foods Black Label Luncheon Loaf” with the same best-by date.
