Annie's frozen pizzas recalled; there might be metal in the dough

Annie's frozen pizzas (in seven varieties!) are being voluntarily recalled across the country because of concerns that metal fragments may have migrated into the organic dough.

Annie's, the Berkeley company known for their natural food products, issued the recall Tuesday after learning that "a fine metal mesh screen failed at a third-party flour mill and fragments of flexible metal mesh were found in the flour and pizza dough."

All Annie’s manufacturers have comprehensive metal control programs that include magnets and metal detection devices. Pieces of the fine wire were too small to be detected and could have found their way into the finished product. While no metal has been found in Annie’s finished product, as a precaution, Annie’s initiated this voluntary recall. There have been no consumer complaints, illnesses or injuries reported to date.
