If you're headed to the grocery store to pick up a frozen pizza, be careful. A prominent food company just disclosed one of its products may have unwanted toppings.
Home Run Inn Frozen Foods is recalling 13,099 pounds of Chicago's Premium Sausage Classic Pizza due to metal particles.
Someone complained that they found baked-in bits. The pizzas were sent to Illinois and subsequently sold.
Look for 33.5-ounce frozen pizza cartons with a best-by date of 12/03/22. The products will have EST. 18498-A inside the USDA mark.
Ingesting metal particles in food can cause "dental damage, mouth or throat lacerations, or intestinal laceration or perforation," says the FDA.
The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is concerned the pizzas may still be in consumers' freezers.
If you bought one of these pizzas, toss it out. If you have questions, visit the FSIS website.
Not just pizza has been recalled lately.
Truffles were taken off shops because they "may contain minuscule quantities of milk proteins" not listed on the packaging and can cause allergic responses.
