Little Caesars Investigates Chain For Potentially Selling DiGiorno Pizzas
A short video posted to Twitter stirred up enough controversy that Little Caesars actually had to investigate if a chain actually was selling frozen DiGiorno pizzas.
A customer standing in line happened to notice a cart-full of DiGiorno boxes sitting behind the counter at Little Caesars. Now without any backstory, this footage is awful incriminating. But there's a good reason for the frozen pizzas being present.
This particular Little Caesars is actually part of a Kmart and somebody must have returned the DiGiorno pizzas. By happenstance, the cart full of pizzas was placed by the Little Caesars counter.
The pizza chain released the following statement to People:
Of course, Little Caesars only serves freshly baked pizzas made from fresh dough. We think this is probably just a funny coincidence, but are investigating.
On that day, K-Mart received a few complaints from customers about having purchased expired DiGiorno pizzas from that location, and because it was so close to closing time, the K-Mart manager directed his employee to temporarily store them in a cooler adjacent to the Little Caesars location for disposal in the morning.
