(CNN) — A packaging mixup has prompted a recall of a batch of DiGiorno pepperoni pizzas.
Nestlé USA, which owns the frozen pizza brand, has recalled a batch of 26-ounce boxes labeled DiGiorno Crispy Pan Crust Pepperoni Pizzas because they actually contain Three Meat Crispy Pan Crust Pizza. The three meat pizza includes soy protein — it’s in the beef topping and sausage crumbles — and can be harmful to people with soy allergies.READ MORE: Growing Number Of Covid Deaths Among Vaccinated In Maryland Linked to Diabetes; Hogan Pushes Booster Shots As State Prepares To Vaccinate Children

These products were shipped out to distribution centers and retailers across the country, the USDA noted. The agency and Nestlé both recommended that people who bought the affected pizzas throw them out or return them.
Nestlé said that if you’re not allergic to soy, it should be safe to eat the pizzas.MORE NEWS: 'It's Very Inappropriate': Cell Phone Video Captures Sex Act In Woodlawn High School Class
