Pizza with BBQ Chicken Recalled for Choking Hazard

An Illinois company is recalling about 109,000 pounds of barbeque chicken pizza products because the products may contain bits of plastic which could choke consumers. The pizza products were made on June 15 and 16. They were shipped to nationwide retail outlets and distribution centers. The  recall was announced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

Products being recalled:

14-pound, 4-ounce cases of “MARKETSIDE, 16″ BBQ CHICKEN PIZZA, 8-16″ Pizzas,” bearing case codes of  “11016611,” “11016621,” “11016711,” or “11016721.” 28.5-ounce “Marketside™, 16″ BBQ RECIPE, Thin Crust, CHICKEN PIZZA.”

The company discovered small pieces of plastic within their BBQ chicken pizza products when the products were being made. So far no injuries or complaints have been reported.

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.
