Annie’s Inc. to recall pizzas over metal shards in dough

Annie’s Inc., a natural and organic foods company based in CA, will voluntarily recall seven types of frozen pizza sold nationwide over concerns that the dough may have been contaminated with metal shards. The company initiated the recall after discovering that a metal mesh screen at a third-party flour mill had failed. No consumer complaints, illnesses or injuries have been reported, and Annie’s said that no metal has been found in its finished product.
