Calzones being recalled due to “possible extraneous material”


Stefano’s Calzone Pepperoni Five Cheese Stuffed With Pepperoni and a Five Cheese Blend are being recalled due possible hazards in the items.

Approximately 24,000 pounds of the calzones are affected. These items may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of hard, sharp, clear plastic, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The problem was discovered after several consumers contacted Stefano Foods about the problem. On July 16, 2018, the company notified FSIS. One person reported experiencing “a small oral laceration” while eating the product.

The following items are affected:

8-oz. deli tray of “Stefano’s Calzone PEPPERONI FIVE CHEESE STUFFED WITH PEPPERONI AND A FIVE CHEESE BLEND,” with “Lot Code 14318B” on the individual packages and “USE BY DATE 1/18/2019” on the product cases.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ and retailers freezers. Consumers and retailers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
