(WWJ) Check your pantry. Multiple varieties of RAGÚ pasta sauces are being recalled in the U.S. because they may contain fragments of plastic.
According to Mizkan America, Inc., while there have not been any reports of consumer injuries or complaints the company is taking this action out of an "abundance of caution."
Consumers should look for the Cap Code on the yellow RAGÚ® jar cap as well as the Best Use By Dates listed below to see if the sauce they have is included:
This voluntary recall, published by the FDA on July 19, is limited to the pasta sauces with these specific production codes, which were distributed nationwide. No other production codes/dates, sizes or varieties of RAGÚ pasta sauces are affected.
The recalled sauces were produced between June 4-8 and Mizkan America believes that the majority of this production run is in its control. However, retailers that received shipments of these products have been notified, and the company is continuing to work with grocers nationwide to make sure the affted products are removed from shelves.
Consumers who have purchased the recalled sauces with the outlined cap codes should call the Customer-Service Hotline at 800-328-7248 during regular business hours. Mizkan America will provide a replacement coupon to reporting consumers and also may make arrangements to retrieve the product for further examination.
