RBR Meat Company, Inc., a company out of Vernon, Calif., has recalled more than 20,000 pounds of frozen pizza products that may have been contaminated with listeria, a bacteria that can cause a serious infection, according to a Friday announcement by the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The recall applies to "Marketside Extra Large Supreme Pizza" that was produced on Feb. 23, 2017. Such items were shipping to distribution centers in California, Nevada, Utah and Washington.
The contamination was discovered during a routine sampling by the firm. Though no illnesses have been reported, the consumption of the bacteria can cause a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, people with weakened immune systems, as well as pregnant people and their newborns.
Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck and gastrointestinal issues.
Consumers who have purchased the product are urged not to consume it and should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
