Five types of Ragu pasta sauce sold nationwide are recalled because they may contain plastic fragments, said US Food and Drug Director Friday.
The recalled sauces were produced between June 4 and June 8, with some cases being sent to dealers recently, according to Mizkan America, US subsidiary Mizkan International, a global food-based company based in Japan. The company has not received any complaints or reports of damages related to the recalled product, it added.
The company did not immediately return requests for how it was decided that the products could be contaminated with plastic or which dealers who received the glasses are recalled. That said, Walmart was among the dealers who entered the recall.
Consumers should check the refrigerator and pantry for recalled jars, and any recalled sauce should be thrown out and not consumed. Customers can call 800-328-7248 between 7:30 am to 5:00 pm CST Monday to Friday. The company said it would provide compensation vouchers for those who bought the recalled products.
