RAGÚ® Pasta Sauce under recall for possible plastic fragments

Mount Prospect, IL (Saturday, June 15, 2019)—Mizkan America, Inc., announced the voluntary recall of select production codes of certain RAGÚ® pasta sauces in the U.S. because the sauce may contain fragments of plastic.  There have not been any reports of consumer injuries or complaints.  Mizkan America is taking this action out of an abundance of caution.  This recall is at the retail level and all impacted retailer customers have been notified of this voluntary recall prior to this press release.  Retail customers who have not been notified are not impacted by this voluntary recall.  Mizkan America also asks consumers to examine their refrigerator and pantry inventory for the specific jars affected by this recall.  Any recalled sauce should be discarded and not consumed.

On the recalled sauces, consumers should look for the Cap Code on the yellow RAGÚ® jar cap as well as the Best Use By Dates listed below. Please see the attached product photos with cap/best used by codes.  These recalled sauces are:

This voluntary recall 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 by this recall. Please note again:  only the Codes listed above are impacted by this recall.

These sauces were produced between June 4-8 and Mizkan America believes that the majority of this production run is in its control.  However, some cases of the sauces listed above were shipped to customers recently and these cases/products are subject to this voluntary recall.  Again, retailers that received shipments of the impacted products have been notified. Mizkan is working together with these retail partners to ensure that these RAGÚ® varieties with the specified case/cap codes are removed from grocers nationwide.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled RAGÚ® sauces with the outlined cap codes should call our Customer-Service Hotline to receive a replacement.  Our Customer-Service Hotline can be reached at 800-328-7248.  Our Customer-Service Team is available to take your call Monday – Friday from 7:30 am – 5:00 pm CST.  Mizkan America will provide a replacement coupon to reporting consumers and also may make arrangements to retrieve the product for further examination.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
