Annie’s frozen pizzas recalled

Annie’s Homegrown has issued a recall for all varieties of the company’s frozen pizzas, because they may contain fragments of flexible metal mesh.

Annie’s manufacturers have metal detectors, but pieces of fine wire have been found in flour and dough.

That’s according to a release from the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation. The department says Annie’s pizzas are sold at stores in Alaska, but there have been no complaints, illnesses or injuries here or elsewhere.

All Annie’s rising crust frozen pizzas with a best by date between January 9th and September 14th of this year are affected by the recall.

Varieties include pepperoni, supreme, cheese, spinach and mushroom, and barbecue chicken.
