DiGiorno Pizzeria Tuscan-style Chicken Pizza

Constellation Company issues
“limited recall” of Corona Extra
If you were thinking about a nice cold brewski to go with your Digiorno pizza, you’re probably okay if it’s not Corona Extra. If it is, take a look at the code printed on the sides of the carton and the bottlenecks, because Constellation has issued a recall for the same reason as Nestle – glass particles.
The recall is limited in scope, according to the company, affecting only about one out of every 5,000 bottles of Corona Extra in 6-pack, 12-pack and 18-pack cases.
Other variations of Corona are not affected by the recall.
On 6-pack and 12-pack cases, if the eight-digit code begins with “G” and ends with “9” and if an 18-pack begins with “F29” and ends with “9,” contact Constellation’s Consumer Call Center at (866) 204-9407.
