LITTLE CHUTE, Wis. (WGGB/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: UPC 71921-00781; production code of 3059525952.
  • DiGiorno Crispy Flatbread Pizza Tuscan Style Chicken: UPC 71921-02663; production codes of 3057525922 and 3058525921.
  • DiGiorno pizzeria! Bianca/White Pizza: UPC 71921-91484; production code of 3068525951.
  • California Pizza Kitchen Crispy Thin Crust White: UPC 71921-98745; production codes of 3062525951, 3062525952 and 3063525951.

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.

All the pizzas were made in February and March of this year.

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

Consumers can contact Nestlé USA Consumer Services at 800-456-4394 Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET and Sat. May 4 from 12:00 to 8:00 p.m., or e-mail.

Nestle says that they will provide a replacement coupon to reporting customers and may make arrangements to retrieve the pizza for further examination.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
