Company officials said the frozen meat pizzas were produced on June 6, 2022.

The following product is subject to recall.

The products are subject to recall bear establishment number "EST. 18498-A" inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a distributor in Illinois and then further distributed to retailers.

There are no immediate reports that the frozen cuisine has made it to any supermarkets or stores in New Jersey. 

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, the problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that it had received consumer complaints reporting metal was found in the pizza.

Officials said there had been no confirmed reports of injuries or adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products.
