The frozen pizzas were distributed to stores nationwide.
Nestle ordered the recall after several consumers reported finding small bits of clear plastic in their California Pizza Kitchen Crispy Thin Crust White pizza. The contamination has been linked to a batch of spinach used in all four varieties of frozen pizza.
To locate the production codes for these specific pizzas, the consumer simply needs to look for a blue or pink rectangular box on one of the side panels of the pizza box. The production code is on the second line of the printed code and is the first ten digits of the number.
Contact Nestle USA Consumer Services at 800-456-4394 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further instructions should you find pizzas with these production codes in your freezer.
Nestle has ordered retailers to begin pulling the affected frozen pizzas, produced in February and March, from shelves.
