As announced yesterday, Kashi is recalling some of its frozen pizzas. In total, Kashi is recalling around 11,000 cases of frozen pizzas because the pizzas might contain small pieces of plastic. As a Fort Lauderdale Products Liability Injury Lawyer, I can say that this presents an issue because it breaches the expectation that we are getting food that is safe for consumption when we purchase it. For those who purchase Kashi frozen pizzas, the pizzas that are affected by the recall are Mediterranean Thin Crust Pizza, Roasted Vegetable Thin Crust Pizza, and Mushroom Trio and Spinach Thin Crust Pizza.
Fortunately, according to the FDA Kashi Frozen Pizza Recall Release there haven’t been any reports of injuries as a result of the potential pieces of plastic in the pizzas. As a Fort Lauderdale Injury Lawyer, I can say that typically with product liability issues, it is important to demonstrate how or why this product defect happened. We don’t know as of yet who is responsible for the plastic contamination or why it wasn’t found in random safety testing, but as long as no one suffers any injuries from this issue, Kashi should be able to avoid any product liability or personal injury claims.
As readers of this blog may remember, I wrote about a similar product recall about three months ago. In that instance, Lean Cuisine recalled its spaghetti and meatballs frozen dinners after consumers notified the company of the plastic pieces. For those who are interested, my blog post on the Lean Cuisine Recall can be found here.
As I’ve mentioned many times before, any time a recall can be completed without anyone suffering injuries it is a great victory. As a Fort Lauderdale Injury Attorney I’ve unfortunately seen the other side of the coin where many people suffer injuries and illnesses as a result of a product defect. Hopefully the news of this recall continues to spread and that anyone who purchased the recalled frozen pizzas can successfully avoid injury.
