The owner of Ragú is recalling some of its jars of pasta sauce over the possibility that they may contain plastic fragments, the company said.
Mizkan America said Saturday it has no reports of injuries or complaints and was launching the recall voluntarily “out of an abundance of caution.”
The sauces, produced earlier this month, were distributed nationally, the company said.
“Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase for a refund,” Publix grocery store chain said in its own announcement.
Customers can also contact Mizkan America for a replacement coupon and to have any sauces picked up for further examination, the company said.
Mizkan America of Mt. Prospect, Illinois, is a subsidiary of the Handa, Japan-based food company Mizkan, which specializes in vinegars, sauces, mustards and dressings. Mizkan Group purchased Ragú and Bertolli in 2014 for $2.15 billion.
