RECALL: Is There Plastic in Your Spaghetti Sauce?

It seems like every week we report on yet another recall (if not more than one) here at The Organic Prepper, and this week is no different. Today’s recall is something you’ll find in many preppers’ stockpiles – Ragu pasta sauce.

What to do if you have the recalled products

The FDA continues:

These sauces were produced between June 4-8 and Mizkan America believes that the majority of this production run is in its control. However, some cases of the sauces listed above were shipped to customers recently and these cases/products are subject to this voluntary recall. Again, retailers that received shipments of the impacted products have been notified.Mizkan is working together with these retail partners to ensure that these RAGÚ®varieties with the specified case/cap codes are removed from grocers nationwide.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled RAGÚ® sauces with the outlined cap codes should call our Customer-Service Hotline to receive a replacement. Our Customer-Service Hotline can be reached at 800-328-7248. Our Customer-Service Team is available to take your call Monday – Friday from 7:30 am – 5:00 pm CST. Mizkan America will provide a replacement coupon to reporting consumers and also may make arrangements to retrieve the product for further examination.

How to avoid these recalls

As you may have noticed, recalls are becoming more and more common in recent days. This article explains why we’re running into so many tainted products.

We strongly recommend avoiding industrial food in order to avoid contaminated or tainted products.

  1. Grow your own (Learn more)
  2. Buy locally (Find nearby farmer’s markets here)
  3. Preserve your own food through canning, dehydrating, or freeze-drying

And finally, forget the Ragu. Here’s how to make and can spaghetti sauce like an Italian grandma.
