The problem was discovered after the firm received consumer complaints that small fragments of plastic were found in the CPK Crispy Thin Crust White Pizza. The problem was related to the lot of spinach used in the production of three additional varieties of pizza subject to recall.

One person has reported a chipped tooth after consuming one of the products.

Officials say the fragments are of clear, brittle plastic, in irregular triangles, and may have sharp edges.

All the pizzas being recalled were produced between Feb. 26 and March 9 of this year and shipped to retail establishments nationwide.
