Durante Pasta Inc. is voluntarily recalling the product, which may contain milk and sulfite allergens

“It's incredibly important to ensure that food products are labeled appropriately, especially when they may contain allergens that can threaten our health," said Consumer Protection Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull. "We hope that consumers will take caution and return this product quickly if they have a milk or sulfite allergy, and we thank Durante Pasta for cooperating with the recall."

This item was sold in select Connecticut stores including:

  • Liuzzi Market, North Haven
  • CT Natural, Wallingford
  • Northford Store, Northford
  • Westside Market, Rocky Hill
  • Charlie’s Meat Market, North Haven
  • ShopRite Wallingford, Wallingford
