Listeria Risk Prompts Pizza Recall

March 17, 2017

RBR Meat Co., Inc. has issued a recall for more than 21,000 pounds of its Marketside brand frozen pizza due to the risk of listeria.

The Vernon, CA-based RBR Meat Co. issued the recall after routine sample testing by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service found traces of the bacteria in the product. The potentially contaminated pizzas were shipped to Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. retail distribution centers in California, Nevada, Utah, and Washington. So far no cases of the illness have been linked to the pizzas, CNN reports.
