WASHINGTON, D.C. (CNN) — Pizza topping brand Ezzo Sausage Company is recalling 25-thousand pounds of meat following possible listeria contamination.

The Department of Agriculture’s Food and Safety Inspection Service made the announcement on Sunday.

The ready-to-eat meats include sliced pepperoni, chopped pepperoni, and sausage.

The recalled products were made on Oct. 29, Oct. 30, and Nov. 5.

Eating food contaminated with listeria can cause fevers, headaches, and loss of balance.

The USDA wants restaurants that bought these products to throw them out or return them.

So far, no one has gotten sick from the meats.
