Plastic fragments found in some frozen pizzas

pizzaWASHINGTON – Nestlé Pizza Co. is recalling some DiGiorno and California Pizza Kitchen frozen pizzas because of consumer complaints that there may be small fragments of plastic in them.

One consumer has reported a chipped tooth from eating one of the pizzas.

The following products are subject to USDA recall:

    First off I want too say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your mind before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my mind
    in getyting my thoughts out. I truy do take pleasure in
    writing but it just seems like the first 10 too 15 minutes are usually lost
    simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas orr hints?
