Bielefeld, Germany-headquartered  Dr. August Oetker Nahrungsmittel KG is recalling  Die Ofenfrische (Over Fresh) brand frozen tunafish topped pizza (GTIN: 4001724011149) from the domestic market. The batch subject to recall (#28061911) was produced on June 28, 2019 and has an expiration/best before date of March 2020.

The company has posted the following advisory, translated from German to English below:

“It cannot be ruled out that in some cases, due to a defect in the supply of raw materials, white plastic particles are in the lining of the pizza. The product concerned was placed on the market exclusively in the German trade from July 2019. To avoid health risks, consumers are asked to hand over the recalled goods at the place of purchase, where a refund will be made. Dr. Oetker apologizes to its customers for any inconvenience.”
