Nestle Pizza Company is recalling several brands of popular frozen pizzas over concerns that small pieces of clear plastic may have made their way onto the pizzas during the production process.

The following products are subject to the recall initiated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture:

  • 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.

Each product package above has an establishment number of P-5754.
 
In addition, the following products are subject to FDA recall:

  • DiGiorno® pizzeria!™ Bianca/White Pizza, UPC 71921 91484; production code is 3068525951.
  • California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) Crispy Thin Crust White®, UPC 71921 98745; production codes are 3062525951, 3062525952 and 3063525951.

The problem was first discovered after the firm received consumer complaints that small fragments of plastic were found in the CPK Crispy Thin Crust White Pizza. The problem was related to a spinach topping used in three additional varieties of pizza subject to recall. The fragments are of clear, brittle plastic, in irregular triangles, and may have sharp edges.

One person reports having a chipped tooth as a result of the plastic pieces.

All the pizzas on the recall list were produced between Feb. 26 and March 9 of this year and shipped to retail establishments nationwide.
