A recent study in the journal Environmental Science and Technology says it’s possible that humans eat anywhere from 39,000 to 52,000 particles of microplastic a year, and that was before it got into your Ragú Old World Style Traditional. Ragú pasta sauce is being recalled over fears that it may contain fragments of plastic, just like how some of our grandmas used to make.

The voluntary recall was issued by Ragú owner Mizkan America Incorporated over the weekend. While the company claims it has not received reports of anyone consuming plastic along with their Ragú Chunky Tomato Garlic & Onion spaghetti, they issued the recall out of an “abundance of caution.”

If you recently restocked your apocalypse bunker with a full line of Ragú pasta sauces, look for a code on the jars’ jaunty yellow caps, as well as the jars’ Best Use By dates, to determine if your stockpile of pasta sauce includes a little plastic.

The recalled sauces are:

  • Ragú Chunky Tomato Garlic & Onion, 45 oz.
    Cap code: JUN0620YU2
    Best Use By Date: JUN0620YU2
  • Ragú Chunky Tomato Garlic & Onion,
    66 oz Cap code: JUN0520YU2
    Best Use by Date: JUN0520YU2
  • Ragú Chunky Tomato Garlic & Onion, 66 oz.
    Cap code: JUN0620YU2
    Best Use By Date: JUN0620YU2
  • Ragú Old World Style Traditional, 66 oz.
    Cap code: JUN0420YU2
    Best Use By Date: JUN0420YU2
  • Ragú Old World Style Meat, 66 oz.
    Cap code: JUNE0520YU2
    Best Use By Date: JUN0520YU2

If your Ragú doesn’t have that name, cap code, or Best Use By Date, feel free to make yourself a nice bowl of spaghetti covered in Ragú, ragu, or even no sauce at all like a big weirdo.
