Home Run Inn Frozen Foods is recalling approximately 13,099 pounds of frozen meat pizza that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal. Upon announcing the recall on August 14, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) advised that the products were shipped to a distributor in Illinois and forwarded to retail stores.
Produced on June 6, 2022, the 33.5-oz retail packs of Chicago’s Premium Pizzeria Deluxe Sausage, Fire Roasted Onion, Green & Red Peppers & Uncured Pepperoni Classic Pizza have a “best by” date of 12/03/22 and bear establishment number “EST. 18498-A” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The problem was discovered when the Woodridge, Illinois-headquartered manufacturer notified FSIS that it had received consumer complaints about metal in purchased pizza.
There have been no confirmed reports of injuries or adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some packs may be in consumers’ home freezers as well as at distribution and retail locations. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to eat them. They should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase for a refund.
Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Nick Perrino, chief operating officer of Home Run Inn Frozen Foods, at +1 630-783-9696, ext. 2151.
