According to news sources, about 161,000 pounds of pasta has been recalled after it was discovered that they were produced during a shift when federal inspectors were not on-site even though it was during operating hours.
The company, D’Orazio Foods Inc, issued the voluntary recall after the Jewel brand frozen stuffed pasta products were produced at a time when no federal inspectors were on site, which is required. The recalled products are the sausage ravioli and the beef ravioli, both of which come in 25-ounce poly bags. The recalled pasta products have a Best By date of “12/01/11” through “12/01/12” and a number Est. 20146 that can be found inside the USDA mark of inspection.
Consumers with the recalled product should contact the company’s president at (856) 931-1900, ext. 117 for additional information or questions.
