I live in Irving, Texas, a surburb of Dallas, Texas, and looked at the code on my Totino's Pepperoni Pizza, it was the effected product code: 42800-11402.

This was bought at a local grocery store who had a sale, 10 for $10, this past weekend. I already ate one. Beware!!!!!!! I am already having symptoms.

Fortunately this week I only bought the Cheese pizza from Totinos. My family luvs all the Totinos pizzas, which r great for snacking ( we buy Digiorno or Freshjetta for meals) and we buy them regularly. It seems nothing is save anymore but I'm grateful for the local and national news for giving me a heads up on the safety of the products I feed my family. I'd recommend Totinos to anyone who likes to snack, they make decent little pizzas and hopefully this recall won't affect their business once it's dealt with.

I am in the process of throwing away these pizzas that I have in the freezer for my granddaughter and her friends. They really enjoy these pizzas and I was very upset about the recall as I fixed one last night 11/1/07 for them. It was a combination pizza and it had pepperoni on it. I sure hope and pray I did not make these children sick but I guess now I have a waiting game to see. I am very disappointed with this.

This type of thing is so frustrating. Consumers should not have to be out any expense to recover loss. How about a 1-800 number that can be used to receive a postage-paid envelope!

Thank goodness Jen you found out about the recall before the fact. I couldn't imagine how devastating it would be for everyone to become sick after a happy event like a birthday party.

JULY AND NOW NOV? "RECALLED" NOT REAL CLEAR. ANY PIZZA I GATHER MADE SINCE JULY THAT HAS PEPPERONI ON IT? NOT JUST A NUMBER MADE AT A CERTAIN PLANT AND DISTRIBUTED TO CERTAIN STATES. SEEMS A LITTLE UNCLEAR OTHER THAN THROW AWAY "ALL" YOUR PIZZA'S.

Pizza, Omaha, NE, not all pizza, just the ones with certain product codes that contain pepperoni. You can get this list of product codes on
generalmills.com . It says it effects 414,000 cases of pizza. If some was shipped to your state, then you could be effectd.

"This type of thing is so frustrating. Consumers should not have to be out any expense to recover loss. How about a 1-800 number that can be used to receive a postage-paid envelope! " I agree, my time to cut out, plus stamp, plus time to drop off. I live in mountains so I buy in bulk. After school snack for my boys who eat a whole one each. Last month youngest had diareah bad, Thank God he is fine today, but had to be what it was. If it was from this, I'm pist and this adds insult to injury as I feel General Mills should send me a refund of cashiers check not coupons for more pizza. If u get bad sick where I live they take u out in helicopter.I still have 11 boxes in chest freezer downstairs and every barcode is included in recall. I want money back, not (cheesy) coupon so I can run back down the mountain.
General Mills is only out their net net cost of replacement pizzas. They will take their 400,000 plus cases affected as writeoff at retail value of $1.59. Here is the catch and this is what General Mills is counting on. Not everyone has a freezer full like me, most only have a one or two. They figure not worth your time sending in so they figure u will just throw pizza away and be done with it. Think about it, who wants to take the time to send in barcode to get pizza coupon that you know just scared u too death knowing that your child could get sick. People are not lining up to fill out mailing envelope, plus cut out, plus 41 cent stamp, to get coupon. Get real General Mills. Thanks for telling me about it, next time just tell me to throw them away. P>S> I have read your complete press release from you that you put out Thursday. Nowhere, I repeat NOWHERE do you say you are sorry nor do you appologize for the inconvience. General Mills , I will say it for you "YOU ARE SORRY" Sobs.

Is there any danger from the Totino Pepperoni pizza rolls?

I agree that a coupon for another pizza is not satisfactory, why would I want another one only to find that it is not safe to eat.

If the first case was all the way back in July, why are they JUST now recalling them?
