DiGiorno pizza is being recalled after customers reported minor reactions.
The recall involves several flavors of DiGiorno pepperoni and cheese pizzas. Consumers who have the product should not eat it. Anyone with a food allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts or soy should discard the product and contact Nestlé Consumer Services at 1-800-681-9764.
As the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service noted, “The recalled product is labeled DiGiorno Bacon, Pepperoni & Cheese Pepperoni, Natural Salted and Peppered.”
The DiGiorno pepperoni pizzas were produced on April 7 and are packaged in a 5 pound clear plastic tray. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 267.”
Consumers who have a product in their possession should return it to the store where they purchased it.
The DiGiorno pizza recall involves products only sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide. Wal-Mart is not responsible for the recall. The company is looking into the source of the problem and will be working with Nestlé Consumer Services to resolve the issue.
This is the latest recall to rock the restaurant industry. According to Food Safety News, Subway recently recalled certain Pepperoni Stuffed or Sliced Pepperoni food items for the potential presence of a harmful bacteria. The recall affected “select packages of Express, Thin Mints, and Clusters breakfast sub sandwiches, among other items” which may be affected by the problem.
