BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Annie’s Inc. is voluntarily recalling seven kinds of frozen pizza sold nationwide over the possible risk that metal fragments made their way into the dough.
The organic and natural food company said it issued the recall after finding out that a metal mesh screen at a third-party flour mill had failed. As a result fragments of the mesh were found in the flour and pizza dough. The pieces of the wire were too small to be detected by control programs and could have made their way into the product.
Annie’s said that while no metal has been found in its finished product, it initiated the recall as a precaution. There have been no consumer complaints, illnesses or injuries reported. It did not disclose the exact number of pizzas involved in the recall.
