January 23, 2013 — The popular organic food company Annie’s Inc. has announced a voluntary recall of its Homegrown Frozen Pizza products “due to the possible presence of fragments of flexible metal mesh caused by a faulty screen at a third-party flour mill.” The company has not actually found any pieces of the mesh in their products, and the recall is a precautionary measure. They have also changed their flour supplier.
The following products are being recalled:
- Organic Four Cheese Pizza, 23.5 oz UPC 013562 200016
- Organic Pepperoni Pizza, 23.6 oz UPC 013562 200009
- Organic Supreme Pizza, 25.4 oz UPC 013562 200023
- Organic Spinach and Mushroom Pizza, 25.0 oz UPC 013562 200054
- Four Cheese Pizza, 22.5 oz UPC 013562 200078
- Pepperoni Pizza, 22.6 oz UPC 013562 200061
- BBQ Recipe Chicken Pizza, 23.1 oz UPC 013562 200092
The products were sold in grocery stores throughout the United States. The recalled products include all lots of Annie’s Rising Crust Frozen Pizza with a best-by date between January 9, 2013 and September 14, 2013.
According to the FDA recall notice, all of the manufacturers have a metal control process that includes magnets and metal detectors to check for metal fragments in food products. The fine, flexible wire mesh could have passed through these detectors and made its way into a final product. However, no mesh has been found in final products. No injuries, complaints, or illnesses have been reported.
