Tyson Foods Recalls Pizzas Due to Allergen

Posted: Updated:

From Food Safety and Inspection Service:

Tyson Prepared Foods, Inc., a South Hutchinson, Kan. establishment is recalling approximately 12,060 pounds of pizza topping products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen. The packaging identifies the products as beef, but they actually contain pork. Additionally, the pork products contain soy, a known potential allergen, which is not declared on the label. 
  
The products subject to recall include:

• 10-pound cartons labeled as "Cooked Pizza Topping" containing two, 5-pound packages labeled as "ARREZZIO-COOKED BEEF PIZZA TOPPING MANZO COTTO PER PIZZA."   
 
The products also bear the establishment number "EST. 623" inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label. The products were produced Jan. 12, 2012, and were sold to foodservice institutions nationwide via a distributor. The product is intended for use in restaurants or institutional food operations; it is not sold in retail grocery stores.

The problem was reported by a product purchaser. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Tyson Consumer Relations at 866-328-3156. Media with questions about the recall should contact the company's Director of Public Relations, Gary Mickelson, at (479) 290-6111.

Consumers with food safety questions can "Ask Karen," the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov or via smartphone at m.askkaren.gov. "Ask Karen" live chat services are available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day.
