WASHINGTON — The US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that Ready Dough Pizza Inc. is recalling pepperoni pizza products that were produced without federal inspection. The Hialeah, Florida-based food manufacturer is recalling approximately 10,584 lbs of the product.
Some of the products did not receive an ingredient label, while others received an inaccurate label. The pepperoni pizza products contain known allergens like milk, wheat and soybeans.
The problem was discovered during routine FSIS surveillance activities. The agency found that the pepperoni pizza products did not have the USDA mark of inspection and were produced in an establishment that was not inspected by USDA. The agency also found that the products were mislabeled or missing labels.
The frozen Cuban-style pepperoni pizza items were produced from Jan. 12 through July 13. Affected items include:
- 14-oz. box packages containing “PIZZA CUBANA CUBAN STYLE PEPPERONI PIZZA.”
The products subject to recall were distributed to retail stores in Florida.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
