Prego Italian Sauce Recalled for Possible Spoilage

The Campbell Soup Company is recalling around 300 cases of 24-ounce jars of Prego Traditional Italian sauce because of possible spoilage.

The products were delivered to retailer distribution centers in Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico and Oklahoma.

The recalled products were manufactured on Dec. 15, 2013, and have an expiration date of June 16, 2015. The time code on the top of the lid range from “CT BJ ZV 0330” to “CT BJ ZV 0449.”

Consumers who have purchased a recalled product are advised not to eat it and to return it to the place of purchase for a refund.

No other Campbell products are affected and no illnesses have been reported in connection with the product. However, due to the time involved in tracing an illness back to a specific food product, it is impossible to say if any illnesses have occurred.

    What kind of spoilage affects a canned product? Other than botulism that is.

    this is an easy fix from the consumer’s standpoint——-before you buy any shelf-stable (canned) product, ALWAYS push in on the top of the jar and/or can. If the top goes down when pressed, the product is compromised. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! As an added safety deed, tell the store manager of your findings. It may save someone else’s life!
