Mizkan America, Inc. is voluntarily recalling specific production codes of some varieties of its RAGÚ pasta sauce because it may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically plastic fragments, according to a Department of Defense All Food and Drug Activity message sent June 17.
The Defense Commissary Agency has publicized this recall to all its stores, said Richard Stith, supervisory consumer safety officer for DeCA headquarters at Fort Lee, Virginia. Whenever a commissary has recalled or withdrawn products in its inventory, they are immediately removed from store shelves.
The following products are affected by this recall:
