New Jersey-based B&G Foods is voluntarily recalling 1,280 cases of 40-ounce jars of Victoria Marinara Sauce. The company recently learned that the product may contain cashew allergens that are not declared on the product’s ingredient label. People who have a cashew allergy run the risk of an allergic reaction if they consume the product, which was distributed to retail stores nationwide:
The recall has been linked back to product produced at one facility on one production day. B&G Foods discovered this issue when it received one consumer complaint alleging a cashew allergic reaction. B&G Foods initiated the recall after its investigation and testing indicated the possible presence of cashew allergens.
“The safety of our consumers is our number one priority. We are committed to providing safe, quality products while observing the highest ethical standards in the conduct of our business,” said William Herbes, Executive Vice President of Operations at B&G Foods.The recall was initiated in cooperation with the FDA.
