It's difficult to find anyone who doesn't like to eat pizza, no matter what form it comes in or whether it's baked in a pan, on a clay stone, or as a pizza calzone. However, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, USDA, has issued a press release announced today by Albie's Foods of Gaylord, Michigan. It involves a recall of approximately 311 pounds of pizza calzone products due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

The fully-cooked, ready-to-eat, calzone products were produced on April 10, 2012, and then shipped to institutions in Indiana and Michigan. The following products are a part of this recall:

Packages containing (48) 4.5 ounce pieces of Albie's Pizza Calzone

Each package bears the establishment number “EST. 10100” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

Albie's Foods nor the USDA have received reports of illness associated with consumption of the recalled product, although the USDA has categorized this recall as a Class I Recall – High Health Risk.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems.

Michigan or Indiana consumers of this product may contact Vice President, Paul Lochinski, Albie's Foods at 989-732-2800 with questions or concerns.
