Annie’s Rising Crust Frozen Pizzas Ship To Stores Nationwide February 11, 2013

Annie's, Inc. (NYSE: BNNY), a leading natural and organic food company, today announced its Annie’s Rising Crust Frozen Pizzas will begin shipping to stores nationwide on February 11, 2013.

“Our great-tasting rising crust pizzas will soon be back in local freezer aisles,” said John Foraker, CEO of Annie’s. “While our recent voluntary recall of pizza products was unfortunate, we’ve sourced our flour from a different third-party supplier and stepped up our already stringent detection programs, consistent with our commitment to providing families the highest quality products, with the safety of our consumers being the company’s utmost priority. ”

The company announced a voluntary recall of its rising crust frozen pizzas on January 22, 2013 after learning a fine metal mesh screen failed at a third-party flour mill and fragments of flexible metal mesh were found in the flour and pizza dough. Annie’s initiated its voluntary recall as a precaution because the pieces of the fine wire were too small to be detected by the comprehensive metal control programs in place.

Mr. Foraker continued, “We are committed to Annie’s Rising Crust Frozen Pizza and will focus on building distribution for this line within our current retailers as we continue to expand in the frozen category. The consumer reaction to this product has been very enthusiastic, and we expect that our pizzas will remain strong performers in this space. We look forward to providing families with more delicious frozen meal options for those nights when it seems impossible to get dinner on the table.”
