WASHINGTON, August 14, 2022 – Home Run Inn Frozen Foods, an establishment in Woodbridge, Illinois, is recalling approximately 13,099 pounds of frozen meat pizza product that may be contaminated with foreign materials, specifically metal, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The frozen meat pizzas were produced on June 6, 2022. The following product is subject to recall [view labels]:
- 33.5-oz cartons containing “Home Run Inn CHICAGO’S PREMIUM PIZZERIA DELUXE PÖLVE CLASSIC PIZZA” with a “best by” date of “12/03/22”.
The products subject to recall have the establishment number “EST. 1[ads1]8498-A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were sent to a distributor in Illinois and then further distributed to dealers.
The problem was discovered when the company notified FSIS that it had received consumer complaints reporting metal found in the pizza.
There have been no confirmed reports of injuries or side effects due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare professional.
FSIS is concerned that some products may be in consumers’ freezers or found at distributors and retailers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. In addition, distributors and dealers are encouraged not to sell these products. These products should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recall firms are notifying their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to ensure that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
