US regulators have told Campbell Soup Co. last week that its Prego pasta sauce contains less vitamin C than advertised and have ordered the company to correct the problem promptly.
The label for Prego Three Cheese Pasta Sauce said the product contained 25% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C. Laboratory tests by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration showed the samples had 5.47% or 8.33% of the daily allowance.
A Campbell Soup spokesperson said the product's label was incorrect. The company has told the FDA it will fix the problem by the end of May.
