If you're heading to the grocery store to pick up a frozen pizza, be careful.
One prominent food maker has recently disclosed that one of their products may include unwanted toppings.
Home Run Inn Frozen Foods is recalling 13,099 pounds of Chicago's Premium Pizzeria Deluxe Sausage Classic Pizza. Metal bits were detected in the product.
The issue was initially detected when someone found baked-in particles. The pizzas were shipped to Illinois and then distributed to shops.
Shoppers should check for the 33.5-ounce carton of frozen pizzas with a best-by date of 12/03/22.
The items will additionally feature the establishment number EST. 18498-A within the USDA inspection mark.
Ingesting metal pieces in food may cause tooth damage, lacerations of the mouth or throat, or intestinal laceration or perforation.
While there have been no complaints of injuries from eating the pizzas, the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is worried the food may still be in customers' freezers.
If you suspect you may have bought one of these pizzas, throw it away. If you have questions concerning the recall, you may contact the FSIS website.
Pizza isn't the only sinful pleasure that's been recalled. Chocolate truffles were removed off stores because they "may contain
tiny levels of milk proteins," which were not stated on the label and may trigger severe or life-threatening allergic reactions in certain individuals.
