(UNDATED) – The owner of Ragú is recalling jars of pasta sauce over the possibility that they may contain plastic fragments, the company said.
Mizkan America said there were no reports of injuries or complaints and was launching the recall voluntarily “out of an abundance of caution.”
The affected products are:
- 45-ounce chunky tomato, garlic & onion, with a June 6, 2020, best-by date
- 66-ounce chunky tomato, garlic & onion, with a June 5, 2020, best-by date
- 66-ounce chunky tomato, garlic & onion, with a June 6, 2020, best-by date
- 66-ounce old world style traditional, with a June 4, 2020, best-by date
- 66-ounce old world style meat, with a June 5, 2020, best-by date
The sauces, produced earlier this month, were distributed nationally, the company said.
“Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase for a refund,” Publix said in its news release.
Customers can also contact Mizkan America for a replacement coupon and to have any sauces picked up for further examination, the company said.
Mizkan America of Mt. Prospect, Illinois, is a subsidiary of the Handa, Japan-based food company, Mizkan, which specializes in vinegar, sauces, mustards, and dressings. Mizkan Group purchased Ragú and Bertolli in 2014 for $2.15 billion.
