According to a press release from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Campbell Soup Company, the parent company of Prego, is voluntarily recalling an estimated 300 cases of 24 ounce sized jars of Prego Traditional Italian Sauce because of a possible spoilage risk.
According to a statement by the FDA, the products currently affected by the recall include codes “CT BJ ZV 0330” to “CT BJ ZV 0449.” The defective items were manufactured on Dec. 15, 2013, and can also be identified by the “Best By” date of June 16, 2015.
The potentially defective items were reportedly uncovered during a “routine quality control test” and were shipped to several U.S. states last month on Dec. 21, 2013, including retail locations in Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
Customers affected by the Prego recall can receive a refund by returning their defective items to the store where they were originally purchased. For more information, consumers can contact the Campbell Soup Company at 866-270-9303 Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. MST.
