Frozen pizza recall: Sharp bits of plastic a tooth-chipping surprise


Beware of pizza you can chip a tooth on.

Four varieties of California Pizza Kitchen and DiGiorno frozen pizzas have been pulled from grocers’ freezers after complaints of plastic fragments in the pies.

These aren’t bits of plastic wrap but clear, brittle, sharp-edged pieces of plastic, according to the Associated Press.

As the Los Angeles Times’ Ricardo Lopez reported earlier, it was a voluntary recall by Nestle USA. The products are CPK’s crispy thin-crust white pizza and its limited-edition grilled chicken with Cabernet sauce. For DiGiorno, it was the crispy flatbread pizza, Tuscan-style chicken, and DiGiorno bianca/white pizza.


The recall was a result of consumer complaints about the plastic, which Nestle says was due to a single lot of spinach.

One customer reported that biting into a CPK pizza resulted in a chipped tooth, the Associated Press said.
