If you’re like me, you can’t resist a good pasta. But as everyone knows, pasta is only as good as the sauce – unless you’re only interested in pasta with butter. However, one of the world’s largest retailers of pasta sauces, the Ragú brand, has announced a recall as fears began to spread that their sauces might contain an unwanted ingredient – dangerous and potentially deadly plastics.
If you don’t want to ingest any plastic particles with your pasta dinner, then you had better read closely to this recall notice. It certainly has sparked fears in diners across the country – and because the recall was issued only days ago, this is something you cannot ignore.
On Saturday, June 15, 2019, Ragú’s parent company, Mizkan America, revealed the horrifying news that their product might contain plastics. Because the recall affects five different products, this is something that you need to take seriously. If you’ve bought Ragú brand in recent days or weeks, don’t ignore this post – this could be bad for your health.
Five products are affected in three different sizes. The flavors that you need to be afraid of including Chunky Tomato and Garlic & Onion. If you’ve bought these flavors recently, keep reading to see if your health might be at risk. And it might be because Ragú’s parent company admitted that these flavors might contain plastic as one of its unintentional ingredients.
Although no injuries have been reported – that does not mean that Ragú is unofficially shelling out cash to victims of the contamination. They might have already come to settlements with affected people and are just trying to mitigate further damages. While that is unlikely to be the case, there is a possibility that it could happen.
The products were recalled “out of an abundance of caution,” which is the legalese companies like this always use whenever they’re trying to recall something that could be severely dangerous to consumers.
The recall affects some of the brand’s most popular items, especially the basic Chunky Tomato variety, which is basic and very good when you touch it up with some extra spices.
The following list includes all the Ragú products that have been recalled. Read it closely because you need to take action before you accidentally eat plastic.
