Recently, Walmart has decided to pull a popular frozen item off the shelves across the country. If you’re a fan of this item, you’ll want to read on to find out what it is and why Walmart is taking it off the shelves. Eat This Not That will provide you with all the details you need to know about this frozen item and why it’s being pulled from Walmart stores.

Walmart Is Pulling This Frozen Item Off the Shelves Across the Country

Walmart is taking a popular frozen item off its shelves across the country. The retail giant is removing a certain type of frozen pizza from its stores due to a potential health risk.

The product in question is the DiGiorno Rising Crust Supreme Pizza. The pizza is being recalled due to the potential presence of pieces of glass or hard plastic in the food. The recall was issued by Nestle USA, the company that produces the pizza.

The recall affects all sizes and varieties of the pizza with the best-by date of December 2019. The UPC code for the pizza is 0 71921 97614 4. Customers who have purchased the pizza should not eat it and should return it to the store for a full refund.

The recall was issued after the company received reports of consumers finding pieces of glass or hard plastic in the pizza. There have been no reports of injuries or illnesses related to the recall.

This isn’t the first time that Walmart has had to recall a frozen food item. In 2017, the company recalled a variety of frozen vegetables due to a potential listeria contamination.

Walmart is taking the necessary steps to ensure the safety of its customers. The company is removing the recalled pizza from its shelves and is offering refunds to customers who have purchased the product.

Less than one month after Walmart pulled Great Value’s Chopped Walnuts and Mighty Sesame Co.’s Organic Tahini from stores, the retailer is taking another item off its shelves.

On September 17, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that Texas-based Valley International Cold Storage Acquisition is recalling 22,061 pounds of frozen beef products, due to misbranding and the presence of undeclared milk, a common allergen.

The recall applies to 9.25-ounce boxes of Healthy Choice frozen meals that were labeled as “Korean-Style Beef,” but contained a chicken sausage and pepper product, which has milk as an ingredient. This could pose a risk to consumers with a milk allergy or sensitivity.

The affected items, which were produced on July 22, 2022, display the lot code of “5246220320,” a “best if used by” date of 4/18/2023, and an establishment number “34622” on the end flap of the carton. The products were shipped to locations nationwide, including Walmart stores across 27 states. See here for the full list of Walmart locations that carried the frozen meals.

Although there are currently no reports of adverse reactions caused by the product, the FSIS advises anyone who is concerned about an illness or injury to contact their healthcare provider. Additionally, the agency encourages anyone who still has items in their freezers to discard them or return them to their place of purchase.

Customers with questions about the recall may contact the Conagra Consumer Care line at (800) 672-8152.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the only frozen food product to be removed from stores recently. Nearly three weeks ago, the FSIS announced that Connoisseur Kitchen was recalling approximately 880 pounds of frozen chicken products, due to possible listeria contamination. The products included two-pound packages of Spice Mantra’s Chicken Korma and Butter Chicken.
