Some Ragu Pasta sauces are being recalled nationally. Chunky Tomato Garlic and Onion, Old World Style Traditional, and Old World Style Meat sauces are being voluntarily recalled because the sauce may contain fragments of plastic. The sauces were produced between June 4th – 8th. Mizkan America, Ragu’s producer says while there have not been any reports of consumer injuries or complaints, they are taking this action out of an abundance of caution.

Mizkan America is asking consumers to examine their refrigerator and pantry inventory for the specific jars affected by the recall.  Any recalled sauce should be discarded and not consumed.
