Over 4000 Pounds Of Frozen Pizza Are Recalled Due To Undeclared Soy
There’s another major food recall involving frozen pizza due to unlisted soy content in the product.
Food recalls occur when a particular food or beverage product is deemed unsafe for consumption due to the presence of harmful contaminants or other factors that could pose a risk to human health. The recall process is typically initiated by the manufacturer or distributor of the affected product, after which the relevant regulatory agencies are notified and the public is informed of the recall. In most cases, consumers are advised to discard or return any affected products, and to seek medical attention if they have consumed the product and experienced any adverse effects. It is important to stay informed about food recalls and to follow any instructions provided by the authorities to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones.
What has been recalled this time?
According to TastingTable, Green Valley Foods, the company behind Grubbersputz’s Premium Snacks in North Dakota has announced that 4,062 pounds of frozen meat pizzas sold in North Dakota, Minnesota, and Montana have been recalled. Five flavors of Grubbersputz’s Premium Pizza are included in the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announcement– Taco, 3-Meater, Hog Unit, House Special and Pepperoni.
There are no reports so far of problems with the soy content that can cause food allergy symptoms ranging from minor swelling, itchiness and runny noses to more serious symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea and fainting. However, the FDA is urging anyone with symptoms to contact their health provider ASAP.
Grubbersputz’s frozen pizzas were introduced in July 2020 and the recall seems to be restricted to four-serving packages of 21.75 to 24.25 ounces. Not included are any thin-crusted flavors or variations not listed in the FSIS announcement. Lot codes may contain the numbers 2632 through 2633 and the establishment number “M47285” may be on the FDA label that reads “inspected and passed by Department of Agriculture.” Any consumer who purchased the recalled items should dispose of them or return them to the point of purchase as soon as possible.
