A “small number of customers” reported the fragments in the CPK Crispy Thin Crust White pizza.

The other varieties were recalled as a precaution.

According to Nestle, an investigation showed the issued was related to a specific lot of spinach.

The recalled pizzas were produced in February and March.

Nestle said it is working with retailers to ensure the pizzas are removed from store freezers.
