Almost 28,000 Pounds of DiGiorno Frozen Pizza Recalled Over Undeclared Allergens and Misbranding

  • Nearly 28,000 pounds of frozen DiGiorno pizza has been recalled due to misbranding and undisclosed allergens.
  • Certain DiGiorno Crispy Pan Crust pepperoni pizza boxes may mistakenly contain three-meat pizza, which includes the known allergen textured soy protein.
  • The USDA urges customers not to consume the pizza, and to discard the product—whether or not they have a soy allergy.

It’s not delivery; it’s a recall. Nestlé is recalling 27,872 pounds of DiGiorno frozen pizza this week due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, per a notice posted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

Certain boxes of DiGiorno Crispy Pan Crust pepperoni pizza might actually contain three-meat pizza instead, which contains the known allergen soy protein—putting consumers at risk of accidental exposure. The recall was announced after a consumer alerted Nestlé of the mix-up.

The only products included in the recall are DiGiorno Crispy Pan Crust frozen pepperoni pizzas with lot code 1181510721 and a best-by date of March 2022. They also display “EST. 1682A” inside the USDA mark of inspection, which is located at the center, bottom of the front of the box. (You can view the recalled box here.) These pizza products were produced on June 30, 2021.

FSIS urges people who still have the recalled DiGiorno pizzas in their freezers not to consume them. Instead, the products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase as soon as possible. Consumers with questions about the recall can reach out to Nestlé directly at 1-800-681-1676.

So far, no allergic reactions due to the mixup have been reported. But, the USDA remains concerned that the frozen pizzas are still in some consumers’ freezers—putting those with the particular allergy at risk.

Soy is one of eight foods that account for the most serious allergic reactions in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Soy allergies are the least common among the so-called “Big 8,” and reactions usually aren’t severe, per the organization Food Allergy Research & Education; however severe and life-threatening allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, are possible, the CDC explains.

So before you pop a pizza in the oven for dinner tonight, make sure you don’t have an improperly labeled pie—you could save yourself an allergic reaction.
