A California company is recalling frozen pizzas after metal fragments were found in the flour and pizza dough at a third-party crust production facility.

In a news release on Wednesday afternoon, Annie's Homegrown Inc. said the problem was traced back to a broken metal mesh screen at a third-party flour mill. The company said some of the wire pieces were too small to be found by metal detectors, so they believe the pieces could be lodged in the frozen pizzas.

They do not have any reported injuries.
