In recent weeks, America has seen an increase in the number of food products being recalled for contamination with unhealthy substances.
Walmart has just announced they are issuing a new recall for listeria, joining many other companies this past month.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), an announcement was made Wednesday that "the Marketside Extra Large Supreme 16-inch pizza, produced by RBR Meat company, is being recalled after the manufacturer conducted a routine sampling and concluded that the pizza may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes."
Over 21,000 pounds of the frozen pizza, sold at Walmart locations, is being recalled.
The pizzas under question were made on February 23rd and labeled as "Marketside Extra Large Supreme Pizza."
The USDA is urging anyone who thinks they may have eaten the contaminated product to look for symptoms of listeria. Some symptoms include muscle aches, headaches, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions. Listeria can also be deadly.
