Smithfield Packaged Meats Corp. is recalling around 24,048 pounds of Stefano Food's pepperoni five cheese calzones because they may be contaminated with pieces of hard, sharp, clear plastic. 

One consumer said that they received a small oral laceration during consumption of the calzone.

The calzones were produced on May 23. The problem was discovered after several consumers contacted Stefano Foods about the problem. On July 16, 2018, the company notified FSIS.
