WASHINGTON – A Nestle USA Inc. facility in Schaumburg, III., recalled approximately 27,872 lbs of frozen DiGiorno Crispy Pan Crust pepperoni pizza due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The problem was discovered after Nestle received a consumer complaint that a three-meat pizza was in a carton labeled as pepperoni pizza. The product contains textured soy protein, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The following products are subject to recall:
• 26-oz carton containing “DIGIORNO PEPPERONI CRISPY PAN CRUST” with lot code 1181510721 and “Best Buy” date of MAR2022 on the label.
The pizza products were produced on June 30, 2021 and bear the establishment number “EST. 1682A” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
Establishment 1682A is Nation Pizza Products Limited, which is owned by Nestle USA Inc. These items were shipped to retail locations and distribution centers nationwide.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
