Graphics include a fork-filled bite of pasta on a blue background that seems to be printed in seven colors. A representative from the U.S. distributor Barilla America, Lincolnshire, IL, declines to reveal packaging materials and suppliers. She does note that the product is packaged in Italy. Available in four varieties, consumers can find the new line on retail shelves now for $2.99.
