Nestlé USA Inc. announced the news on its website.
Nestlé USA Inc. is recalling more than 28,000 of its DiGiorno Crispy Pan Crust Pepperoni Pizza due "to potential mislabeling and undeclared soy, a known allergen."

"People who are allergic to soy could have an allergic reaction and should not consume the product," said Nestlé's statement. The pizzas were "produced June 30, 2021, with lot code 1181510721 and “Best Buy” date of MAR2022 on the label."
The affected products have the establishment number “EST. 1682A.” Nestlé also revealed that the problem was discovered by a consumer, who reached them.
"There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an injury, illness, or allergic reaction should contact a healthcare provider. Consumers who have purchased this product are urged not to consume them. This product should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
