Trader Joe's Recalls 131,000 lbs of Pizza

March 30, 2011

Trader Joe's issued a voluntary recall of over 131,000 lbs of their frozen Pizza al Pollo Asado. The company has been alerted by the product's manufacturer, Completely Fresh Foods Inc., out of Montebello, California, that the frozen pizza is not, in fact, completely gluten free as the label claims, but may contain trace amounts of wheat.

The mislabeled gluten free pizzas are said to have been produced between January 27, 2011 and March 27, 2011 and carried by Trader Joe’s stores nationwide.
