The Campbell soup company has issued a voluntary food recall due to risks of spoilage. The spoilage factor was discovered in a routine quality control test.
According to an FDA report released on Dec. 31 Prego Traditional Italian Sauce is the only Campbell product cited in this food recall. No consumer illnesses to date have been reported in connection to the recalled sauce.
Over 300 cases of the Prego 24 ounce jars are being recalled. These jars of sauce have a “Best Buy” date of June 16, 2015 printed on them. The codes on the jars to identify which ones need to be returned to stores range from CT BJ ZV 0330 through CR NJ ZV 0449.
The recall applies only to Prego jars of sauce sold in the United States. They were manufactured in the Paris, Texas plant and shipped out to retailers on Dec. 21 to Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
The FDA is warning consumers not to eat the sauce if they purchased a jar within the block of numbers on the recall list. Instead, all products should be returned to the retail grocery store they were purchased in for a full refund.
For more information all concerned consumers can contact Campbell at 866-270-9903 if they need to obtain more information. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. EST.
