It’s time to check your freezer again. After recent recalls of everything from ice cream to peanut butter, the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) just announced Ready Dough Pizza’s recall of 10,584 pounds of pepperoni pizza products.

The box to look for is the 14-ounce package marked “Pizza Cubana Cuban Style Pepperoni Pizza” and you can view the exact label here. The products were produced between January 12 and July 13, 2022 and were only shipped to retail locations in Florida.

It turns out there are a number of reasons the pizzas are being recalled. Routine FSIS surveillance revealed that the boxes did not feature the required USDA mark of inspection and that the products were produced in a factory that had not been inspected by the USDA. In addition, some of the products were mislabeled or had no ingredient labels at all, which could be a big problem for anyone with allergies.

Although, luckily, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions, FSIS recommends that if you do have any of these pizzas in your freezer, you should just throw them out or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.
