The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the United States Department of Agriculture announced on Sunday that frozen meat pizzas from an Illinois company are being recalled due to metal contamination concerns.
According to the FSIS release, Home Run Inn Frozen Foods, centered in Woodbridge, Illinois, is recalling upwards of 13,000 lbs of frozen pizza that could be tainted with “extraneous materials,” especially metal.
The item in question is 33.5-oz cartons of “Chicago’s Premium Pizzeria Deluxe Sausage Classic Pizza” from the company.
The recalled items were manufactured on June 6, 2022, and have a best before date of December 3, 2022.
According to the FSIS news release, they also carry the establishment number “EST. 18498-A” within the USDA mark of inspection.
The products were delivered to an Illinois distributor before being distributed to retailers. The issue was revealed after FSIS was notified that the corporation had received customer complaints about metal in the pizzas.
The recall has been classified as Class I (High or Medium Risk) by the USDA, which means it involves “a health hazard situation in which there is a reasonable probability that eating the food will cause health problems or death.”
Customers with questions about the recall can call Home Run Inn Frozen Foods COO Nick Perrino at 630-783-9696, ext. 2151.
