WASHINGTON, May 4 (UPI) -- Nestle USA's Pizza Division is voluntarily recalling select production codes of four different frozen pizzas sold nationwide due to plastic, officials say.

Officials said they took the action after a small number of consumers reported they had found small fragments of clear plastic on the California Pizza Kitchen Crispy Thin Crust White pizza.

"Our investigation indicates this is directly related to a particular lot of spinach we received from one of our suppliers," officials of Nestle's USA Pizza Division said in a statement. "Although no complaints have been received to date on the other three varieties that used this spinach, we are recalling these additional varieties in an abundance of caution.

"All the pizzas recalled were produced in February and March. Because Nestle USA delivers pizzas in the U.S. directly to retailer freezer cases, we have already instructed our direct store delivery team to begin removing pizzas affected by this recall at retail locations nationwide."

Recalled are:

-- California Pizza Kitchen Crispy Thin Crust White, UPC 71921 98745; production codes: 3062525951, 3062525952 and 3063525951.

-- California Pizza Kitchen Limited Edition Grilled Chicken with Cabernet Sauce, UPC 71921 00781; production code 3059525952.

-- DiGiorno Crispy Flatbread Pizza Tuscan Style Chicken, UPC 71921 02663; production codes 3057525922 and 3058525921.

-- DiGiorno pizzeria! Bianca/White Pizza, UPC 71921 91484; production code 3068525951.

No other production codes/dates, sizes or varieties of California Pizza Kitchen or DiGiorno pizzas are affected by this recall, company officials said.

Consumers who might have purchased the recalled pizzas with the identified production codes should not consume the pizza, but instead contact the Nestle USA Consumer Services at 1-800-456-4394 or for further instructions Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., E.T. and this Saturday, May 4th from 12 noon to 8 p.m.
