Recall: 29.4-ounce packages of “The Junction Pizza, Pepperoni Thick Crust”

Product ID & Code:
The recalled products bear the establishment number “EST. 40038” or “P-40038” inside the USDA mark of inspection, and a “made on date” between “3 27 13” and “9 23 13” that appears on a sticker on the back of the product. The products were produced between March 27 and Sept. 23, 2013, and shipped to retail stores in the Grey Eagle, Minn., area.

Reason for Recall:
The problem was discovered by FSIS inspection personnel during a routine label review. FSIS personnel are responsible for verifying that establishments are actively labeling the eight most common food allergens. The undeclared soy lecithin is used as a releasing agent in the pizza crust, which was purchased from an outside source.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.


Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact Stephanie Austing, the company owner, at (320) 304-4768.
