Two of the country’s best-known pizza ranges have been pulled from the freezers at major supermarkets amid fears of contamination.

Food Standards Australia and New Zealand issued the recall for the McCain Foods pizzas on Friday.

“The recall is due to the presence of foreign matter (metal),” it said.

“Food products containing metal may cause illness or injury if consumed.”

The affected products are:

  • McCain Ham & Pineapple Family Pizza 500-gram, with a best-before date “APR 2025 097”
  • McCain BBQ Chicken & Pineapple Family Pizza 500-gram, with best-before dates “APR 2025 097” and “APR 2025 098”

The pizzas have been sold at Woolworths and independent retailers, including IGA, nationally. They have also been on sale at Coles and Aldi across the country, except Tasmania, and at Drakes supermarkets in Queensland and South Australia.

FSANZ warned consumers should not eat the products. Instead, they should be returned to where they were bought for a full refund.

FSANZ said anyone concerned about their health should seek medical advice.

Further information is available from McCain Foods on 1800 000 422 or through its website.
