William Shatner's Turkey Fryer Fire a Cautionary Tale
A pizza recall has been announced after it was discovered that about 11,000 cases of Kashi frozen pizzas may contain small pieces of plastic, which could result in injuries for consumers.
The Kashi frozen pizza recall was issued June 6, though there have reportedly been no consumer complaints or injuries related to the plastic contamination.
The recalled Kashi frozen pizzas were sold in grocery stores nationwide.
The pizza recall affects the following Kashi frozen pizzas:
- Kashi Mediterranean Thin Crust Pizza sold in a 12.7 ounce box with UPC Code 1862732905 3 and Best If Used Before date of either May10 12NU, May18 12NU, or May19 12NU;
- Kashi Roasted Vegetable Thin Crust Pizza sold in a 12.2 ounce box with UPC Code 1862737342 1 and Best If Used Before date of either May09 12NU or May14 12NU;
- and Kashi Mushroom Trio and Spinach Thin Crust Pizza sold in a 11.9 ounce box with UPC Code 1862737344 5 and Best If Used Before date of May17 12NU.
It is the second major food recall this year due to plastic contamination. In March, more than 10,000 pounds of Lean Cuisine spaghetti and meatballs frozen dinners were recalled for similar problems after Nestle, the manufacturer, began receiving reports from consumers of small plastic pieces in the meals, reports Aboutlawsuits.com. There were at least three major food recalls last year due to similar plastic contamination.
Consumers affected by the pizza recall or with the affected frozen pizzas can contact the Kashi Consumer Response Center on their website.
