We have some important news for those of you who are familiar with the Trader Joe’s Pizza products, as it has been confirmed that there is a Trader Joe’s Pizza recall, which affects around 131,000 pounds of frozen pizzas due to the fact that they contain wheat, an allergen which isn’t listed on the packaging.
The exact Trader Joe’s Pizza product is called Trader Joe’s Pizza Al Pollo Asado and the pizza has produce dates of January 27 and March 27 2011, according to ChicagoTribune.
While the overall health risk is low, it’s potentially a much more serious problem for those of you who suffer from wheat allergy, as consuming these pizzas could have serious health consequences.
It’s important to note, that if you have recently bought this product, or have it lying in your freezer and you don’t suffer from wheat allergy, then you will have no problems eating it, since the wheat allergy risk is the only factor associated with this recall. However, the pizzas have now been removed from supermarket shelves until the product has been repackaged with the correct wheat warning.
What are your thoughts on this recall? Are you a fan of Trader Joe’s pizzas?
