Nestlé USA’s Pizza Division today announced the voluntary recall of select production codes of four different frozen pizzas sold in the U.S. The voluntary recall is limited to frozen pizzas with specific production codes, which were distributed nationwide. Specific varieties of CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN or DIGIORNO pizzas are affected by this recall. The reason for the recall is that the pizza may contain fragments of clear plastic, which could result in internal injuries if ingested.
A small number of consumers reported that they had found small fragments of plastic on the CPK Crispy Thin Crust White pizza, and Nestlé thinks this is directly related to a particular batch of spinach from one of their suppliers.
The recalled pizza containers are imprinted with the following production codes:
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.
To locate the production codes for these specific pizzas, the consumer simply needs to look for a blue or pink rectangular on one of the side panels of the pizza box. The production code is on the second line of the printed code and is the first ten digits of the number. Consumers who may have purchased the recalled CPK and DIGIORNO pizzas with the identified production codes should not consume the pizza, but instead should contact Nestlé USA Consumer Services at 800-456-4394 or [email protected] for further instructions.
“You never really know that the consumer product you have in your home is 100% safe or not”, says Port Charlotte defective product lawyer Scot D. Goldberg. “This recall may sound like a minor thing, but every year, thousands of people suffer serious injuries from using unsafe or defective products, including food items, medicines and many other categories”.
