Plastic fragments prompt frozen pizza recalls

LITTLE CHUTE, Wis. (AP) - Nestle Pizza Co. of Little Chute is recalling four frozen-pizza products that might be contaminated with plastic fragments.

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

_ California Pizza Kitchen Limited Edition Grilled Chicken with Cabernet Sauce.

_ DiGiorno Crispy Flatbread Pizza Tuscan Style Chicken.

_ DiGiorno pizzeria! Bianca/White Pizza.

_ California Pizza Kitchen Crispy Thin Crust White.

The USDA says one consumer reported a chipped tooth after biting into one of the California Pizza Kitchen products. The problem was apparently related to the spinach in the pizza, so the company is recalling other pizza products that used the same lot of spinach.

The fragments are of clear, brittle plastic with sharp edges.

Consumers can contact Nestlé USA Consumer Services at 800-456-4394 or nestlepizza(at)casupport.com.
