Askov, MN-based Kettle River Products, has recalled 1,464 pounds of chicken alfredo pizza for misbranding and an undeclared allergen,  according to USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The product contains wheat, a known allergen, which is not listed on the product label.

“FSIS is concerned that some products may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase,” according to the recall notice.
The frozen, heat-treated, not fully cooked items were produced on various dates between Dec. 9, 2021, through Jan. 3, 2022. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 12-inch, 25-oz. plastic-wrapped “KETTLE RIVER Chicken Alfredo Pizza” with lot codes “21343, 21349, 21362 or 22011” stamped on the bottom of the product packaging.

The recalled products bear establishment number “P-04203” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail and restaurant locations, as well as fundraiser programs in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The problem was discovered when the company determined that it used labels intended for a different product that does not contain wheat and reported the issue to FSIS.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
