Frozen pizza recalled over listeria fears - CNN.com

(CNN) More than 21,000 pounds of frozen pizzas are being recalled due to possible listeria contamination, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Wednesday.

 
RBR Meat Company Inc. recalled its Marketside supreme frozen pizza, which may have been "adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes," according to FSIS. The pizzas were sold at select Walmart stores in a 50.6-oz. box containing single shrink-wrapped 16-inch pizzas labeled as "Marketside Extra Large Supreme Pizza," with lot code 20547.
 
During routine sampling, FSIS discovered the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. "There are no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from consumption of the pizzas at this time," according to the recall announcement.

"It's not about the actual time. It's about changing that hour. That's what causes all the trouble," said the Republican from Shelby Township, Mich., about 25 miles north of Detroit.

He greets what is coming at 2 a.m. Sunday — when most Americans must set their clocks ahead one hour — with a mix of dread and chagrin.

In another nod to their authenticity, the chairman of the House intelligence committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said he was very concerned about the release and has sought more information about it.
