Michael Jackson’s Pizza: No, Pizza Is Not a Drug, Says FDA



Food and Drug Administration inspectors have stopped a recall of Michael Jackson pizza after finding a bacterial infection in its production line, the agency said Wednesday.

The FDA said the infection was detected in a batch of pizza manufactured by Pizza Hut in the San Jose, Calif., area, and the bacteria was isolated and tested for and found to be harmless.

Pizza Hut did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Parks and Recreation is also being recalled due to the outbreak.

The agency said it has no further information.

Pizzas are manufactured at an in-house facility in Southern California, and they are served in restaurants and on the menu at restaurants owned by the Michael Jackson estate.

Parses from the factory are then processed and packaged at a plant in San Jose.

The agency said the production line is owned by a company called Pizza Hut California Inc.

The pizza chain has about 1,000 locations worldwide.
