It cannot be ruled out that individual packages contain wire.

Specifically, the recall concerns the Mondo Italiano stone oven pizza Funghi (2x 365 gram pack) deep-frozen with the best before date August 28th, 2023.

Frozen pizza recall: customers get a refund

Products with the said best-before date can be returned to the store and the full price will be refunded - even without presenting the receipt.
HASA GmbH states that their customer service is available 24 hours a day for further questions.
Recall due to risk of injury: Foreign objects in food are not uncommon
