Anyone who has purchased varieties of a popular pasta sauce is requested to re-check the label to make sure that it contains plastic fragments.
Mikzan America Inc. announced on Saturday that some varieties of Ragú pasta sauce were subject to voluntary recall by "caution".
"There have been no reports of injuries or complaints from consumers," the company said in a press release.

The sauces were produced from June 4 to 8 and distributed nationally, according to the company. Mizkan America claimed that most of the production was "under its control", but that some of the crates had been shipped to customers.
"Mizkan is working with these retail partners to ensure that these Ragú varieties with the specified case / cap codes are removed from the country's grocery stores," the company said.
The sauces involved include:
- Ragú Traditional Old World style (66 oz) with an expiry date of June 4, 2020.
- Ragú Chunky Tomato Garlic and Onion (45 and 66 ounces) with the expiry dates of June 5 and 6, 2020.
- Old Ragú meat (66 oz) dated June 5, 2020.
Products affected by the recall can be identified by a yellow jar cap as well as by the best use according to the dates indicated by the company.
"This voluntary recall is limited to pasta sauces with these specific production codes, which have been distributed throughout the country," said Mizkan. "This code does not apply to other production codes / dates, sizes or varieties of Ragú pasta sauces."
