Nestle Recalls Pizza & Pasta for Possible Glass

(CN) - Nestle issued a recall of a limited number of DiGiorno pizzas, Lean Cuisine pastas and Stouffer's meals because of a possibility of glass pieces in them, according to the FDA.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the voluntary recall Thursday, which the agency says is "due to the potential presence of glass pieces."

The recall covers specific product codes of DiGiorno thin and crispy spinach and garlic, rising crust spinach and mushroom, pizzeria thin crust spinach and mushroom, and pizzeria Tuscan-style chicken pizzas.

A limited number of Lean Cuisine spinach and mushroom pizzas, spinach artichoke ravioli, ricotta and spinach ravioli, mushroom mezzaluna ravioli, and spinach, artichoke and chicken paninis have also been recalled.

The affected Stouffer's products include some spinach soufflé and vegetable and chicken lasagna meals.

The government says it believes the possible small glass pieces may have come from spinach that was used in the recalled products.

Nestle USA's recall is limited to certain product codes listed on the FDA's website. Product codes are typically found on the side panel of food packages.

The company said it is "taking this action out of an abundance of caution after several consumers reported that they had found small pieces of glass in some of these products."

No injuries have been reported, according to the FDA.
