FDA warns – Hudson Harvest Tomato Basil Sauce recalled due to potential under-processing, spoilage

Germantown, New York-based Hudson Harvest has recalled its Hudson Harvest Tomato Basil Sauce after receiving a number of reports indicating that the product may be under-processed, according to the FDA.

Under-processing tends to result in the presence of “spoilage organisms or pathogens,” which is consistent with the reports, which described jars of the product “swelling, leaking, or bursting.”

Announced by Hudson Harvest on June 18, 2024, the voluntary recall covers products that were made available for purchase at retailers across New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, during May and June of 2024.

Affected products come in 16-ounce glass jars, as shown in the photo attached to the FDA communication, bearing lot #1042426 on the inside, and UPC (Universal Product Code) #683720301567 above the bar code.

While no illnesses or adverse outcomes have been reported in connection to the problem to date, anyone who may have purchased the product should refrain from using it, despite the appearance of the item. Those seeking a complete refund may return the product to the point of purchase.

Further questions about the recall may be directed to Hudson Harvest at 1-800-811-3795, Extension 2, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
