An Omaha food company is recalling Hy-Vee individually packaged pepperoni pizzas, according to a USDA press release issued Tuesday night.

The recall was issued after a problem with the labeling was discovered during a standard label-verification process, according to a release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Made by Omaha company D & D Foods Inc., the items dated dated between April 18 and July 21 contain soy lecithin, a known allergen which is not declared on the final product label, the release states.

Shipped to locations in Minneapolis, the items subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. M21275” inside the USDA mark of inspection, the release states. Specifically, the items subject to this recall include:

  • Cases of four 32-oz., individually packaged pizzas of “Hy-Vee PEPPERONI PIZZA 16″ THIN CRUST” with case code of 88943.
  • Cases of four 27-oz., individually packaged pizzas of “Hy-Vee PEPPERONI PIZZA 12″ TRADITIONAL CRUST” with case code 88901.
  • Cases of four 47-oz., individually packaged pizzas of “Hy-Vee PEPPERONI PIZZA 16″ TRADITIONAL CRUST” with case code 88929.
  • Cases of four 19-oz., individually packaged pizzas of “Hy-Vee PEPPERONI PIZZA 12″ THIN CRUST” with case code 88915.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products; nevertheless, the release urges consumers who have purchased these items not to eat them. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness is advised to contact a healthcare provider.
