Bad news for frozen food lovers: DiGiorno Pizzas, Stouffer’s lasagnas and Lean Cuisine meals are being recalled following customer complaints of glass found in the food.

Nestle USA, the company responsible for the brands, issued a voluntary recall of nearly three million boxes of the frozen food items on March 10. However, the Swiss-based food company says no injuries have been reported, according to WLOX.

“Although our investigation is ongoing, we believe the source of the glass is spinach that was an ingredient common to the products subject to this recall,” the company said in a statement.

Nestle made no mention of refunds, but customers can return the following brands to the store in which they were bought:

  • DiGiorno Thin & Crispy Spinach and Garlic Pizza
  • DiGiorno Rising Crust Spinach and Mushroom Pizza
  • DiGiorno pizzeria Thin Crust Spinach and Mushroom Pizza
  • DiGiorno pizzeria Tuscan-style Chicken Pizza
  • Lean Cuisine Spinach and Mushroom Pizza
  • Lean Cuisine Spinach Artichoke Ravioli
  • Lean Cuisine Ricotta and Spinach Ravioli
  • Lean Cuisine Spinach, Artichoke & Chicken Panini
  • Lean Cuisine Mushroom Mezzaluna Ravioli
  • Stouffer’s Vegetable Lasagna, the 10 oz., 37 oz. and 96 oz. sizes
  • Stouffer’s Spinach Soufflé
  • Stouffer’s Chicken Lasagna

According to the International Business Times, the recall does not compare in severity to Maggi instant noodles in India that were found to have high levels of lead in them, costing Nestle $251 million.
