Wal-Mart is recalling more than 21,000 pounds of frozen pizza sold in mostly western states over concerns the pizzas may be contaminated with listeria.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall Wednesday of the Marketside (Wal-Mart's brand) Extra Large Supreme frozen pizza, which was sold shrink-wrapped in a 50.6 ounce box. The pizzas were 16 inches in size and had lot code 20547. Marketside 

FSIS found listeria in routine sampling of the products.

“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from consumption of the pizzas at this time,” the recall announcement read.

The pizzas are supplied by RBR Meat Company Inc., which is based in California. 

The Class I recall means it is a “health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death,” the USDA said.

The pizzas were sold in California, Colorado, Nevada, Washington state, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Wyoming, Alaska, and Hawaii, according to International Business Times. Consumers can return them to the store they purchased them from or throw them away.
