Walmart issued a major recall of frozen pizza after its brand announced a potential listeria contamination.
The company issued the recall for its frozen pizzas sold under the Marketside brand – to be exact, 21,220 pounds of the brand’s extra large Supreme pizza were recalled. The food safety inspection Service detailed the recall on its website.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 1821” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail distribution centers in California, Nevada, Utah and Washington.
The problem was discovered during routine sampling by the firm. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
Consumption of food contaminated with L. 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.
“With the full knowledge and under the guidance of the FDA, we’ve decided to voluntarily recall this product out of an abundance of caution,” Christopher Gavigan, co-founder, said in a video on The Honest Company’s website.
