Fragments of Clear Plastic on Pizza Lead to Nationwide Recall of Specific California Pizza Kitchen and DiGiorno Frozen Pizzas

Nestlé USA’s Pizza Division recalled select production codes of four different frozen pizzas sold in the U.S. because the pizza may contain fragments of clear plastic. These include: 

  • California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) Crispy Thin Crust White, UPC 71921 98745; production codes are 3062525951, 3062525952 and 3063525951.
  • California Pizza Kitchen Limited Edition Grilled Chicken with Cabernet Sauce, UPC 71921 00781; production code is 3059525952.
  • DiGiorno Crispy Flatbread Pizza Tuscan Style Chicken, UPC 71921 02663; production codes are 3057525922 and 3058525921.
  • DiGiorno pizzeria! Bianca/White Pizza, UPC 71921 91484; production code is 3068525951.


The production codes for these specific pizzas are located in 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. The recall is limited to frozen pizzas with these specific production codes, which were distributed nationwide.


A number of consumers reported that they had found small fragments of plastic on the CPK Crispy Thin Crust White pizza. The manufacturer’s investigation indicates this is directly related to a particular lot of spinach received from a supplier.


All the pizzas being recalled were produced during February and March of this year. Stores have been alerted to remove these varieties from freezer shelves nationwide. Consumers should examine their freezer inventory for the specific packages of DiGiorno and CPK varieties affected by this recall.
