RBR Meat Company of California is recalling about 21,220 pounds of frozen pizza because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. According to FSIS, the pizza subject to recall comes in a 50.6 oz corrugated box containing one shrink wrapped 16 inch pizza with lot code "20547".

The pizzas were available in California, Colorado, Nevada, Washington state, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Wyoming, Alaska and Hawaii, Wal-Mart said.

According to FSIS, no illnesses tied to the recall had been reported as of March 15. "1821", which can be found inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The focus of the recall is RBR Meat Company's Marketside Supreme frozen pizza.

The recalled frozen pizzas were produced February 23. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected. Many products that are sold on the market nowadays have been recalled due to these problems. An invasive infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. Consumers can return them to the store they purchased them from or throw them away. Listeriosis during pregnancy, though, could lead to miscarriage, premature delivery, life-threatening infection of the newborn, or stillbirth. The condition can be particularly unsafe for babies, pregnant women, older people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Despite the fact that listeria can be treated, there are some people that might be more sensitive to it.

Listeria symptoms, such as high fever, stiffness, and nausea, typically appear a few days to a few weeks after eating the contaminated item.
