DiGiorno, California Pizza Kitchen frozen pizzas recalled due to risk of plastic fragments

Nestlé USA’s Pizza Division announced Thursday a voluntary recall of four different DiGiorno and California Pizza Kitchen frozen pizzas sold in the U.S. after a small number of consumers reported that they had found small fragments of plastic on the CPK Crispy Thin Crust White pizza.

The affected products in the recall include:

  • 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.

Nestle USA says the voluntary recall is limited to frozen pizzas with these specific production codes, which were distributed nationwide. No other production codes/dates, sizes or varieties of CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN or DIGIORNO pizzas are affected by this recall.

An investigation into the issue indicates this is directly related to a particular lot of spinach received from a supplier.

All the pizzas being recalled were produced during February and March of this year.

Because Nestlé USA delivers pizzas in the U.S. directly to retailer freezer cases, we have already instructed our direct store delivery team to begin removing pizzas affected by this recall at retail locations nationwide. We also are working together with our retail partners to ensure that these varieties are removed from freezer shelves nationwide.

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. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., E.T. and this Saturday, May 4th from 12 noon – 8 p.m. E.T.. Nestlé will provide a replacement coupon to reporting consumers and also may make arrangements to retrieve the pizza for further examination.
