Pasta Sauce Recalled Over Botulism Fears
Tullia’s is recalling Tullia’s Italian Meatless Pasta Sauce after tests revealed its acidity was low enough to allow the growth of the organism that causes botulism. The sauce is labeled in blue ink with the code 530140. The batch includes 16 and 32 ounce sizes.
The sauce is sold at Rosauer’s, Yoke’s, Egger’s on West Rosewood, Trading Company Stores in Spokane, Main Market and Albertson’s at Wandermere Mall.
Botulism is potentially fatal, but the company has not been notified of any illnesses associated with the sauce. The decision to recall the product was made after a review by the Washington state Department of Agriculture.
