Ragu recalls pasta sauce over possible plastic contamination

  • Five types of Ragu pasta sauce are being recalled because they may contain plastic fragments.
  • Consumers should throw out the pasta sauce, its manufacturer said. 
  • The sauce manufacturer said it will provide coupons to customers who had bought the recalled sauce.

Five types of Ragú pasta sauce sold nationwide are being recalled because they may contain plastic fragments, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Friday.

The recalled sauces were produced between June 4 and June 8, with some cases shipped to retailers recently, according to Mizkan America, the U.S. subsidiary of Mizkan International, a global food manufacturer based in Japan. The company has not received any complaints or reports of injuries related to the recalled product, it added.

Walmart was among the retailers that posted the recall, first announced by Mizkan in mid-June. The company stressed that products currently on store shelves are not involved in the recall, and that sauces in glass jars were also not impacted. 

Consumers should check their refrigerators and pantries for recalled jars, and any recalled sauce should be thrown out and not consumed. Customers can call 800-328-7248 between 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CST Monday through Friday. The company said it will provide replacement coupons for those who purchased the recalled products.
