Recall 2 weeks ago
Tennessee, United States
“The FSIS announced the recall of approximately 16,868 pounds of Italian Meatball, Beef Ravioli, and Pepperoni Pizza ready-to-eat frozen products by Coco's Italian Market that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
FSIS advises consumers not to eat the recalled products. These should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. The frozen Italian meatball, beef ravioli, and pepperoni pizza items were produced on various dates from January 2019 through July 2020. The products subject to recall do not bear an establishment number inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Tennessee. The following products are subject to recall:
- 16-oz. clear plastic bags packages containing 4 pieces of "Coco's ITALIAN MARKET Fully Cooked Italian Meatballs" and a USDA mark of inspection represented on the label.
- 15-oz. plastic-wrapped plastic covered containers containing "Coco's ITALIAN MARKET Take - n - Bake BEEF RAVIOLI WITH LUCIANA'S MARINARA SAUCE."
- 16-in. plastic-wrapped cardboard trays containing "Coco's ITALIAN MARKET Take - n - Bake Hand Made Pepperoni Pizza" with a USDA mark of inspection represented on the pepperoni label.
- 7-in. plastic-wrapped cardboard trays containing "Coco's ITALIAN MARKET Take - n - Bake Hand Made Pepperoni Pizza" with a USDA mark of inspection represented on the pepperoni label.
The problem was discovered when the Tennessee Department of Agriculture observed products produced by Coco's Italian Market in retail locations labeled with the federal marks of inspection. They also identified other labeling issues, such as the omission of net weight on the pepperoni pizza product. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
