Nationwide recall issued for 4 types of frozen pizzas


Nestle USA is recalling some of its frozen pizza products after a small number of consumers complained that they found clear plastic fragments on their California Pizza Kitchen Thin Crust White pizzas, CBS News reports.

The fragments were traced by Nestle to a lot of spinach received from one of its suppliers, and as a result, the company recalled three other types of frozen pizza that used the spinach.

--California Pizza Kitchen Limited Edition Grilled Chicken with Cabernet Sauce

--DiGiorno Crispy Flatbread Pizza Tuscan Style Chicken

--DiGiorno pizzeria! Bianca/White Pizza

No complaints were made about the other three pizza products.

All the products were produced in Wisconsin between February and March of 2013, so Nestle urges consumers to check their freezers. Stores have also been asked to remove the pizzas.

More information on the recalls is available on the US Food and Drug Administration's website.
