The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced that 802 VT Frozen, located in Newport, Vermont, has issued a recall for approximately 8,221 pounds of frozen meat pizza. The pizza products are misbranded and contains an undeclared allergen.

"The product contains soy, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label."

The pizzas were produced during the past year - from April 25, 2023, through April 25, 2024. The pizzas are packaged in 17.8-ounce cardboard boxes labeled “802 VT Frozen MEAT!!! CRISPY WOOD-FIRED CRUST HAND MADE PIZZA.” The “best if used by” dates on the product are April 25, 2024, through April 25, 2025. The pizzas have the establishment number “EST. 46308” inside the USDA mark of inspection.


The frozen meat pizzas were sent to retail locations and fundraisers in New York, as well as, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Because of the long shelf life, FSIS is concerned that the pizzas are in consumers' freezers. The pizzas should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase. No adverse incidents have been reported so far. Any consumers who suffer an illness should contact their healthcare provider. According to the Cleveland Clinic,

"A soy allergy causes your immune system to overreact to soy proteins. Symptoms include stomach problems, cough, and itching."

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact 802 VT Frozen directly at 802-274-1177 or call the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 888-MPHotline (888-674-6854).
