Some Kraft pizzas are recalled

U.S. food giant Kraft Foods Global Inc. says it is recalling about 4 tons of frozen pepperoni and sausage pizzas because they might trigger soy allergies.

The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service said the Medford, Wis., company's products might contain soy protein concentrate, an undeclared allergen that poses a health hazard to people allergic to such ingredients.

Being recalled are 17.2-ounce packages of "Kraft Jack's original, sausage and pepperoni pizza made with pork, chicken and beef.

The FSIS said the package might bear a Tombstone Original 12 Pepperoni Pizza label on the back of the product. Any products bearing a Jack's back label are not subject to the recall.

The recalled pizzas are packaged on a cardboard disc and wrapped in clear plastic. The packages bear the product number 7192100519, a Julian lot code number 09320 and the USDA mark of inspection with an establishment number on a white paper label on the back.

The products were distributed to retail establishments in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Washington and Wisconsin.
