Home Run Inn’s frozen pizza recalled for possibly containing metal

Close to 15,000 pounds of Chicago’s own Home Run Inn frozen pizza has been recalled because it may be contaminated with metal. Cheese, sausage, pepperoni, green and red peppers, and roasted onions. Those were the listed ingredients. Metal of course should never be found on or in someone’s pizza.

33.5 ounce carton

The recalled Home Run Inn pizzas were delivered to distributors in Illinois. From there they were, as CNN explains, “further distributed to retailers.” Customers that purchased the recalled pizza should discard it or return it to their retailer for a refund.

While the pizza was distributed in Illinois, the locations of further distribution were not noted. Also, with a shelf Best By Date of early December 2022 and a shelf life that’s likely much longer, it’s possible this pizza will be in your freezer for a while.

For their part, Home Run Inn released a statement that reads in part, “safety of our customers and quality of our Home Run Inn products is paramount…” They also want customers to know they’re “working closely” with the USDA on the recall.
