The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced that Whole Foods/North Atlantic Kitchens, an establishment in Everett, MA is recalling approximately 73,898 pounds of pepperoni pizza products because of misbranding. The label says the product contains uncured beef pepperoni. But the product contains uncured pork pepperoni which was undeclared on the product label. The USDA says some people are intolerant or sensitive to pork.
The FSIS has designated this a Class II Recall of Low Health Risk.
The products subject to recall are:
- 10-oz. vacuum-sealed packages of “WHOLE FOODS MARKETS, PIZZA, PEPPERONI, 8”.
- 19-oz. vacuum-sealed packages of “WHOLE FOODS MARKETS, PIZZA, PEPPERONI, 12”.
The products were produced Jan. 5, 2015, through Jan. 22, 2016. They bear establishment number “EST. 20234” inside the USDA mark of inspection and Sell-by dates of Jan. 12, 2015 through Jan. 30, 2016 printed on the packaging.
The recalled items were shipped for retail sale and wholesale in the following states:
- New Jersey
- Rhode Island
- New York
- New Hampshire
The FSIS discovered the problem during a label review at Whole Foods/North Atlantic Kitchens. The USDA says the problem occurred as a result of a change in ingredient suppliers.
The USDA says there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from eating this product. The USDA says that anyone with concerns about illness or injury should contact a healthcare provider.
According to the posting on USDA's website, people are urged not to eat the recalled items, but should either throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
The company says that consumers with questions about the recall can contact them at (512) 477-5566 ext. 20060 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday central standard time.
