Montreal – PastaCo bolognese sauce is being recalled due to the possible presence of dangerous bacteria, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said on Friday.
“PastaCo is recalling PastaCo bolognese sauce because this product could promote the proliferation of the Clostridium botulinum bacteria,” the CFIA said in a statement.
