Among this past week’s recalled food and consumer products is a frozen pizza sandwich that had the wrong product in its packaging.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Astrochef LLC is recalling about 7,363 pounds of pepperoni stuffed pizza sandwich products because the packaging may actually contain meatball stuffed pizza sandwich products.
The frozen items were produced on June 4 and July 3, 2019, and sold in 10-ounce packages with best if used by dates of May 29, 2020, and June 27, 2020.
The problem was discovered after consumer complaints notified the company of the mispackaged product. The recall is being announced because the meatballs contain soy, which is not on the ingredient label for the pepperoni pizza product.
The frozen items should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration also reported last week that Salud Natural Entrepreneur Inc. is recalling its Nopalina Flax Seed Fiber powder and capsule products due to possible salmonella contamination in one of the ingredients used in the formula.
The flax seed products were distributed throughout the country via retail stores and the company’s website. The powder was sold in 1- and 2-pound bags, and the capsules were sold in 120-count packages.
For UPC codes, lot numbers and best if used by dates, check out the FDA’s website at www.fda.gov.
The recall comes after an FDA sampling of senna leaves powder, an ingredient used to manufacture the product, which tested positive for three types of salmonella. The company said it has ceased the use of the ingredient.
