On March 15, RBR Meat Company Inc., a Vernon, California, company, recalled approximately 21,220 pounds of frozen pizza product that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.
The product subject to the frozen pizza recall is the 50.6-ounce corrugated box containing 1 shrink-wrapped, 16-inch pizza labeled, “Marketside Large Supreme Pizza,” with lot code 20547.
The frozen, supreme-style pizza was produced Feb. 23, 2017.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.
FSIS and the company are concerned that some product may be frozen in consumers’ freezers, waiting to be warmed up.
Consumers who have purchased this product are urged not to consume it. This product should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
