If you’ve ever had a DiGiorno pizza before, you realize that they do their best to live up to their motto of being just like delivery.

They are a leader in the frozen pizza industry, but they are now the subject of a recall that is spanning the nation.

Reports were coming in that the pizzas had soy protein, which is a known allergen, but it wasn’t listed on the box. As a result, Nestlé is recalling almost 14 tons of frozen pizza.

According to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), any consumers who purchased the products should not consume them. They said: “FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers.”

It seems as if this was first brought to their attention when the boxes labeled pepperoni pizza were actually boxes containing three meat pizzas. Three meat pizza contains textured soy protein, which is an allergen. The mislabeled products were shipped to retail locations across the nation.

According to the FSIS, the boxes were produced on June 30, 2021, and have a March 2022 expiration date. You can also check to see if you have one of those pizzas by looking at the USDA mark of inspection sticker, which may say “EST. 1682A.” That is the code for the Nation Pizza Products Limited, which is a subsidiary of Nestlé.

If you have one of these pizzas in your freezer and have a soy allergy, you should either throw it away or return it for a refund. As of this date, there are no confirmed reports of allergic reactions to this pizza.
