Frozen Pizzas at Home Run Inn have been recalled due to metal contamination.

The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service has issued a statement about the recall of roughly 13,100 pounds of frozen meat pizzas from Home Run Inn Frozen Foods due to possible metal contamination (FSIS).

Consumers complained to Home Run Inn about discovering metal fragments in their pizza, prompting the establishment to issue a recall. As of the publication date, there have been no confirmed incidents or other adverse reactions from persons who have eaten any of the pizzas.

The Home Run Inn Chicagos Premium Pizza Deluxe Sausage Classic Pizza in 33.5-ounce cartons with a best by date of December 3, 2022 are the precise frozen pizzas affected by the recall. They were manufactured on June 6, 2022.

Officials at the USDA warn that some of the affected items may be found at distributor and retail locations or in consumers' freezers. Consumers who have purchased these items are advised to dispose of them rather than risking illness.

The presence of metal in food raises the question, how does it get there? Darin Detwiler, Northeastern University's food and food industries director, tells SELF that in most cases, the issue is likely to have occurred during manufacturing. During the manufacturing of food, Metal shavings and other debris can end up in food from machines involved in processing.

A spokeswoman for Home Run Inn said the company's safety and quality of its products are of paramount importance. The FSIS advises that anyone who discovers one of these pizzas in their freezer to dispose of it immediately or return it to the store where they purchased it for a full refund. Make an appointment with a doctor if you suspect you have suffered an injury or illness.
