(Before It's News)

Toronto-based RFG Canada Inc. Thursday recalled approximately 1,250 pounds of meat and poultry pizza products imported from Canada and not presented to FSIS for re-inspection upon entry to the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

Without the benefit of full inspection, a possibility of adverse health consequences exists.

The self-rising chicken bacon ranch and thin crust pepperoni pizzas were produced in Canada on March 3 and August 17, 2016 and imported to the United States on/around Sept. 13, 2016. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 30.3 oz. packages of “WEIS Self-Rising Pizza; Chicken Bacon Ranch” containing the UPC code 041497028337 and Canada Establishment 411 and best by date MAY 16 2017.
  • 20.2 oz. packages of “WEIS Thin Crust Pepperoni Pizza 3 Pack” containing the UPC code 041497026524 and Canada Establishment 411 and best by date DEC 01 2016.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “Canada Est. 411.” These items were shipped to retail locations in Maryland, New York, and Pennsylvania.

The problem was discovered on Sept. 16, 2016, by the FSIS import inspector during routine monitoring of shipments destined for their assignment. On Sept. 20, 2016, FSIS confirmed that there was a failure to present shipment and the products were already in commerce without receiving FSIS re-inspection upon entry to the United States.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

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. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website.
