Announcement

Eight varieties of Hy-Vee pizzas are recalled from all six Twin Cities Hy-Vee stores

Hy-Vee, Inc. based in West Des Moines, Iowa, is voluntarily recalling eight Hy-Vee brand pizzas that were sold at its six Minneapolis-area stores because they may contain undeclared soy. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The take-and-bake Hy-Vee brand pizzas were distributed at the Twin Cities Hy-Vee stores in New Hope, Oakdale, Lakeville, Brooklyn Park, Eagan and Savage, near the stores’ Italian departments and prepared-meal areas. The Hy-Vee pizzas are packaged in plastic wrapped pizza tins and sold out of refrigerated display cases. They are produced by Hy-Vee’s wholly owned subsidiary D & D Foods, Inc., based in Omaha, Nebraska.

Below is the product description, size and UPC number that can be found on the label of each Hy-Vee pizza that is being recalled.

To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with these products.

The recall was initiated after a U.S. Department of Agriculture inspection at D & D Foods uncovered the dough softener used in the pizza crusts contained soy and it was not identified on the product labels’ list of allergens. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a product label filing error.

Customers who purchased these varieties of Hy-Vee pizza at any of the six Hy-Vee stores in the Twin Cities should dispose of them or return them to their local Hy-Vee store for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact Hy-Vee Customer Care representatives 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 800-772-4098 or CustomerCare@hy-vee.com.
