Nationwide Company Recalls 24,000 Pounds of Food Containing Sharp Foreign Materials; Oral Laceration Complaint Reported

July 20, 2018

After a consumer complaint, a famous company has decided to recall 24,000 pounds of its product.

Smithfield Packaged Meats Corp., who does business as Stefano Foods, is recalling 12 tons of their pepperoni five cheese calzones. They believe it was contaminated with "extraneous materials."

More specifically, they have found hard, sharp, clear plastic inside their calzones, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The first complaint was on July 16 when the individual notified the establishment. FSIS reported that there have been at least one person who has experienced a laceration inside their mouths while consuming the calzone.

FSIS is concerned that some consumers may have these calzones inside their freezers and may be overlooked. If you have this product, FSIS asked that you do not consume the product. Instead, you should either discard the product or return it to the place of purchase.

The Recalled Product:

8-oz. deli tray of “Stefano’s Calzone PEPPERONI FIVE CHEESE STUFFED WITH PEPPERONI AND A FIVE CHEESE BLEND,” with “Lot Code 14318B” on the single packages and “USE BY DATE 1/18/2019” on the cases.

The recalled item has the establishment number "EST. M-19140." These products were shipped and delivered all across the nation.
