(ANTIMEDIA) United States — Nestle was forced to issue a recall of nearly three million boxes of frozen DiGiorno pizza, Stouffer’s lasagne, and Lean Cuisine meals after customers reported an unexpected and quite unwelcome discovery in their food: glass.

Nestle is voluntarily recalling 2.98 million individual food items that may contain glass. The company stated no injuries have been reported.

Without elaborating further, Nestle theorized the glass could have come from spinach, which is common to all the varieties in the recall. An internal investigation is underway.

Customers are urged not to consume the possibly-tainted products listed on the company’s website, but to instead contact customer service.

Products under recall include:

DiGiorno: Thin & Crispy Spinach and Garlic Pizza, Rising Crust Spinach and Mushroom Pizza, Thin Crust Spinach and Mushroom Pizza, and Tuscan-style Chicken Pizza

Lean Cuisine: Spinach and Mushroom Pizza, Spinach Artichoke Ravioli, Ricotta and Spinach Ravioli, Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli, and Spinach, Artichoke & Chicken Panini

Stouffer’s: Vegetable Lasagna (10 oz, 37 oz, and 96 oz sizes), Spinach Soufflé, and Chicken Lasagna

Pertinent UPC labels, ‘Best Before’ dates, and other information is available on the Nestle USA website here.
