RAGU Old World Style Flavored with Meat 66oz Jar (PRNewsfoto/Mizkan America, Inc.)

Mizkan America, Inc., has announced a voluntary recall of select production codes of certain RAGÚ® pasta sauces in the U.S. because the sauce may contain fragments of plastic. 

The company says there have not been any reports of consumer injuries or complaints, but it 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 the voluntary recall.

Retail customers who have not been notified are not impacted by this voluntary recall. 

Mizkan America is also asking consumers to look in their refrigerators and pantries for the specific jars affected by this recall.  Any recalled sauce should be discarded and not consumed.

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.  

These sauces were produced between June 4-8 and Mizkan America says it believes 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.  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 the Customer-Service Hotline at 800-328-7248, Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. CST to receive a replacement.

Mizkan America will provide a replacement coupon to reporting consumers and also may make arrangements to retrieve the product for further examination.
