Two frozen pizza brands recalled after plastic fragments found

DiGiorno and California Pizza Kitchen are recalling several thousand pizzas after small plastic fragments were discovered in many of the pizzas. Although Nestle USA, who currently owns both of the frozen pizza manufacturers, claims that no one has reported any injuries or deaths after having consumed the products, the company isn’t taking any chances and has issued the immediate recall of four different types of the pizza.

The defective products from the California Pizza Kitchen brand are the Crispy Thin Crust White, and the Limited Edition Grilled Chicken with Cabernet Sauce. From the DiGiorno brand, the recall includes the Crispy Flatbread Pizza Tuscan Style Chicken and the Pizzeria Bianca/White Pizza.

According to a statement released by Nestle, the plastic contaminants were traced back to a batch of spinach received from one of its suppliers. The company believes that the recall covers all of the products that would have contained the plastic but is urging all consumers to be leery of frozen pizzas containing spinach at this time.

All of the pizza are said to have been produced between February and March of 2013. Consumers are encouraged to check production dates and are urged to return any of the recalled products.

Recalls such as this are particularly frightening because brands such as this are distributed to consumers nationally, leading to a larger population of people who could be at risk of injury. While no one is reported to have been injured in this case, it’s important to remember that consuming a product that is considered to be dangerous could result in serious health problems. It’s for people who find themselves in a situation like this that legal representation is highly suggested.
