How long will Newman's Own pasta sauces last in the refrigerator once they are opened?

When a jar of sauce is opened, the vacuum seal on the jar breaks, allowing air to enter the jar. Because Newman's Own's pasta sauce does not contain preservatives, the product is susceptible to spoilage upon exposure to air, even when it has been properly refrigerated. The actual length of time the product can be kept in the refrigerator after opening is dependent upon many factors, including the temperature of the refrigerator itself. Typically, the product will last 3 to 7 days when refrigerated. It is advisable that any leftover sauce be used as soon as possible or removed from the glass jar and frozen until used.
