Approximately 8,221 pounds of frozen meat pizza distributed under the 802 VT Frozen brand are being recalled from retail stores and home freezers in the northeastern United States due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. The wood fired product, produced by Newport-based Vermont Pie & Pasta Company, contains soy, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.

The 17.8-oz. pizza is packed in cardboard boxes proclaiming “best if used by” the dates of April 25, 2024, through April 25, 2025, bearing establishment number “EST. 46308” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The SKUs in question were distributed to retailers and fundraisers in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.

The problem was discovered during routine verifications conducted by the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Concerned that some packs may be in home freezers, FSIS urges consumers allergic to soy who have purchased or have access to these products not to eat them. The pizza should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase to obtain a refund.
