What Food Item Has Been Recalled?
We expect the products we buy and consume to be safe for our use and consumption. Unfortunately, that is not always the case and sometimes the products we buy can pose potential risks to our health and/or safety. When a potential risk or health hazard is discovered about a product, it is common for the company that makes the product to issue a recall to help warn consumers about the potential risks associated with the product. Recently, some varieties of a popular pasta sauce has been recalled.
Mizkan America, the company that makes Ragu pasta sauce, has issued a recall for some types of their pasta sauces. The reason for the recall is concern that some of the sauces may be contaminated with small pieces of plastic. The types of sauces included in the recall are:
- Chunky Tomato Garlic and Onion (45 ounce and 66 ounce sizes)
- Old World Style Traditional (66 ounce size)
- Old World Style Meat (66 ounce size)
The sauces included in the recall were made between the period of June 4 through June 8. The sauces included in the recall have cap codes JUN0620YU2, JUN052-YU2, JUN0620YU2, JUN0420YU2 and JUN0520YU2. The company has kept most of the jars of sauce made during this time period in their control, but some have been sent to stores and sold. Because some of the jars made it to nationwide distribution, the company has contacted stores to ensure that they are aware of the recall.
There have been no reports of injuries from any of the consumers of the sauce. If you own one of the sauces that is under recall, you should throw it out and not consume it. The company is offering coupons for a replacement sauce for those who have sauces included in the recall.
