Recall issued on DiGiorno pizza for undeclared allergens
Nestle USA Inc. has issued a recall on frozen DiGiorno Cripsy Pan Crust pepperoni pizza due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced on Sunday.
The frozen pepperoni pizza product carton may actually contain frozen three meat pizza, which contains textured soy protein, a known allergen.
This is not declared on the product label.
The pizza products were produced on June 30, 2021. The product is a 26-oz. carton containing “DiGiorno Pepperoni Crispy Pan Crust” with lot code 1181510721 and “Best Buy” date of MAR2022 on the label.
The problem was discovered after Nestle USA Inc. received a consumer complaint that a three meat pizza was in a carton labeled as pepperoni pizza.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption.
Anyone who has purchased these products are urged not to consume them and should instead throw them away or return them to the place they purchased them from.
