DiGiorno, Lean Cuisine, Stouffer’s Recall Over Glass Particles in Food
DiGiorno pizzas, Stouffer’s and Lean Cuisine are all making the rounds in the news headlines as of late. But it is not because of a new product line or new marketing strategy – it is because of a massive recall due to the presence of glass in the finished products.
According to the AP, close to the 3 million boxes of Lean Cuisine, Stouffer’s and DiGiorno are currently being recalled after customers reported finding pieces of glass in the food. Nestlé USA, the food maker of all the brands has stated that the glass may have come from the spinach used in all three products.
The voluntary recall applies only to specific production codes of these products:
- DiGiorno Thin & Crispy Spinach and Garlic Pizza
