Before opening a jar of Ragu pasta sauce for your Sunday dinner, have a look to make sure it is not part of a new recall.
Mizkan America, the company that makes Ragu, announced a recall of several types of sauce, referring to the fact that some were contaminated with plastic fragments.
The types of sauce in question include three varieties of Chunky Tomato garlic and onions in both 45-ounce and 66-ounce sizes, according to a Friday issued by the US Food and Drug Administration. The list also includes 66 ounces of Old World Style traditional and Old World Style Meat bottles.
There have been no reports of injuries or complaints from consumers, says the FDA. If you find one of these sauces in the closet or refrigerator, Mizkan asks you to throw it out and not eat anything.
The sauces were produced between June 4 and 8, and Mizkan has kept the majority of the jars made during the production run during the check. But for the glasses that made it nationwide distribution, the company says that it has contacted dealers to ensure they are removed from shelves.
The pasta sauces are recalled carrying the cover codes JUN0620YU2, JUN0520YU2, JUN0620YU2, JUN0420YU2 and JUN0520YU2.
If you bought one of the recalled sauces, Mizkan offers replacement vouchers to customers who call their customer service line, (800) 328-7248.
