Nestlé Just Quietly Recalled Pizza and Pasta Brands Over 'Potential Presence of Glass'
The transnational food and beverage giant NestlÃ© is widely reviled by activists for its far-ranging corporate irresponsibility, from the privatization of water supplies across the globe to the aggressive marketing of baby formula to the detriment of public health.
The company’s practices are so egregious it is now the target of a global boycott campaign, with an International NestlÃ© -Free Week declared for the fall of 2016.
Now, there is further incentive to avoid consumption of NestlÃ© products: NestlÃ© USA quietly revealed last week that it has recalled some of its DiGiorno, Lean Cuisine and Stouffer’s products due to “the potential presence of glass pieces.”
The company made the announcement in a statement posted to the website of the Food and Drug Administration.
The DiGiorno Thin and Crispy Spinach and Garlic Pizza, as well as the Rising Crust Spinach and Mushroom Pizza, are among the products impacted by the recall. So is the Lean Cuisine Spinach, Artichoke & Chicken Panini and the Stouffer’s Vegetable Lasagna.
“We are recalling these products because they may contain small pieces of glass that may cause injury,” noted the statement. “Although our investigation is ongoing, we believe the source of the glass is spinach that was an ingredient common to the products subject to this recall.”
The company issued the recall voluntarily and claims that no injuries have been reported.
