Frozen Pizzas Have Been Recalled For A Dangerous Ingredient

Frozen Pizzas Have Been Recalled For A Dangerous Ingredient ...

Sometimes we just get home, throw a frozen pizza in the oven, and become one with the couch after a long day or week of work. There's a special kind of pleasure in it, associating the taste of a frozen pizza with the moment one finally relaxes.

When you prepare a frozen pizza for dinner, we all know what to expect from our pizza: stretchy mozzarella, rich marinara, pepperoni, mushrooms, or onion.

Except metal. Which should never be a pizza topping.

The USDA has issued a recall for the Frozen Pizza brand.

The USDA announced that it would recall 13,099 pounds of frozen meat pizza for the reason that it "may be contaminated with other substances, specifically metal."

This steely pie is created by the Illinois-based company Chicago's Home Run Inn, which is typically sold at major shops such as Walmart (WMT) and Target (TGT) as well as grocery stores such as Kroger (KR) and Publix.

If you have a pizza in your freezer, these foods that might be harmful to your health are called the Deluxe Sausage Classic Pizza and are labeled with a best by date of December 3, 2022.

Another method to locate the product is to look for the establishment number EST. 18498 inside the USDA mark of inspection.

After a consumer complained that they discovered metal in pizzas, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) discovered the problem. Fortunately, there have been no formal instances of anyone being injured due to this, so they either realized the metal was there while chewing or had incrediblely strong stomachs.

The FSIS would like it very much if people in possession of these pizzas would refrain from eating them. The products should either be discarded or returned to the place where they came from (although the person you speak to about a return might not believe you initially when you tell them your pizza contains metal).

This year, there have been a lot of food recalls.

While food recalls are fairly common, something like metal in the food is a fairly rare event. There are a few more recent recalls to keep an eye on.

King's Hawaiian Pretzel buns are the first on the list to be recalled on August 13 due to the possibility of microbial contamination. Customers are advised to dispose of the product or contact King's Hawaiian if they'd like a replacement at877-695-4227.

Fifth Season, a salad kit company, has issued a voluntary recall for its Crunchy Sesame Salad Kits on August 14, because the label does not state that milk or eggs are present in the product and may cause allergic reactions for some people. It advises customers to discard the products and contact Rich Mosgrove or Hatie Gondoza by phone at 412-899-2268 if they have any questions.

Trader Joe's Soft-Baked Snickerdoodle Cookies have been recently recalled as a result of the possibility of hard plastic pieces in the products. Enjoy Life recommends that consumers throw away the items and contact them for a refund.
