Pasou Foods of Syracuse, IN is recalling about 147 pounds of frozen, fully cooked, ready-to-eat pizza sticks because a meat ingredient may have been produced without federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Friday.
According to the recall alert, during an ongoing food safety assessment of the company, FSIS personnel determined that the raw ground pork ingredient used in the ready-to-eat pizza sticks was purchased from an unapproved source and the meat may not have been federally inspected.
FSIS has received no reports of illness.
The Class II recall is for boxes containing 100 “Pizza Stix.” Case labels bear the establishment number EST. 1903 in the USDA mark of inspection and may have been produced this year on February 2 and 29. The products were sold to a food distributor for further distribution to a caterer and other institutions in Indiana.
A Class II recall is a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product.
