Nestle Recalls DiGiorno Pizza, Lean Cuisine and Stouffers In Concern Over Broken Glass In The Food


If you were planning on popping a Lean Cuisine or DiGiorno in the oven for dinner, you might want to check your freezer.

Nestlé issued a voluntary recall for certain DiGiorno, Lean Cuisine, and Stouffer’s products in the U.S. because they could contain small pieces of glass.

The company recalled the products Thursday after several consumers found small pieces of glass in some of the products, Nestle said in a statement.

While no injuries have been reported, Nestle said in a statement it decided to issue the voluntary recall out of “an abundance of caution.”

“We believe the source of the glass is spinach that was an ingredient common to the products subject to this recall,” the company said in a statement.

Nestle Canada Inc. also issued a recall for several Delissio brand frozen pizzas in Canada.

The recall affects the following products:

• 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
• Stouffer’s Chicken Lasagna

There was no comment from Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs Commissioner Devan Carrington who apparently remains blissfully unaware of the public health risk to consumers in the territory. Carrington declined to be interviewed for this article.
