DETROIT (WWJ) – Four varieties of California Pizza Kitchen and DiGiorno frozen pizzas are being recalled after some customers found small plastic fragments in the food.
Nestle Pizza Company, which produces the products, announced the voluntary recall Thursday. Nestle said “a small number” of consumers have discovered the clear plastic pieces in the pizzas.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said one consumer reported a chipped tooth after biting into one of the California Pizza Kitchen products. But because the problem was related to the spinach in the pizza, the company is recalling other pizza products that used the same lot of spinach.
The following products are subject to recall:
- California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) Crispy Thin Crust White, UPC 71921 98745; production codes are 3062525951, 3062525952 and 3063525951
- California Pizza Kitchen Limited Edition Grilled Chicken with Cabernet Sauce, UPC 71921 00781; production code is 3059525952
- DiGiorno Crispy Flatbread Pizza Tuscan Style Chicken, UPC 71921 02663; production codes are 3057525922 and 3058525921
- DiGiorno pizzeria! Bianca/White Pizza, UPC 71921 91484; production code is 3068525951
The production code is on the second line of the printed code and is the first ten digits of the number.
The voluntary recall is limited to frozen pizzas with these specific production codes, which were distributed nationwide. No other production codes, sizes or varieties of California Pizza Kitchen or DiGiorno frozen pizzas are affected by this recall.
All the pizzas being recalled were produced during February and March of this year.
Consumers who may have purchased the recalled products should not consume the pizza, but instead should contact Nestlé USA Consumer Services at 800-456-4394 for further instructions.
