Bolognese Sause Recalled for Allergens & Misbranding

Ohio-based Summer Garden Food Manufacturing Wednesday recalled approximately 25,000 pounds of Bolognese sauce products because of undeclared allergens and misbranding.

The high health risk recall includes products that contain soy, wheat and MSG that are not declared on the label. Soy and wheat are known allergens. Subject to the Class II recall are:

24-oz. jars of “Giant Eagle Market District Bolognese Pasta Sauce” bearing the establishment number “EST. 34795” inside the USDA mark of inspection and bearing “Best By 12/05/2014 or 02/06/2015” on the lid.

The products were produced on two dates: Dec. 5, 2012, and Feb. 6, 2013, and shipped to distributors in Ohio and Pennsylvania for further retail sales under the “Market District” label.

Summer Garden discovered the problem during a quality control label review.

The company then notified UDDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) that the subcomponents of the cooked seasoned shredded beef were not included on the pasta sauce label. The subcomponents of the beef in the Bolognese sauce include soy, wheat and MSG. FSIS.

Anyone who experiences an adverse reaction from these products should contact a health care provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and to ensure that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
