Nestle recalls pizza, pasta products delivered to Alaska that may contain glass

Due to the potential presence of glass pieces, Nestlé USA is initiating a voluntary recall of a limited number of DiGiorno®, Lean Cuisine®, and Stouffer’s® products. The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation’s Food Safety & Sanitation Program confirmed these products have been distributed in the state.

The recall covers specific production codes of DiGiorno Thin & Crispy Spinach and Garlic Pizza, DiGiorno Rising Crust Spinach and Mushroom Pizza, DiGiorno pizzeria Thin Crust Spinach and Mushroom Pizza, DiGiorno pizzeria Tuscan-style Chicken Pizza, Lean Cuisine Spinach and Mushroom Pizza, Lean Cuisine Spinach Artichoke Ravioli, Lean Cuisine Ricotta and Spinach Ravioli, Lean Cuisine Spinach, Artichoke & Chicken Panini, Lean Cuisine Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli, Stouffer’s Vegetable Lasagna (10 oz., 37 oz. and 96 oz. sizes), Stouffer’s Spinach Soufflé and Stouffer’s Chicken Lasagna.

A company announcement for Nestlé on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website stated that no injuries have been reported.

“Although our investigation is ongoing, we believe the source of the glass is spinach that was an ingredient common to the products subject to this recall. Nestlé USA 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,” the statement said.

Nestlé is working with the U. S. Food & Drug Administration and the U. S. Department of Agriculture on the voluntary recall.
