You may want to take a look in the freezer to see if you are storing any of these products.A New York snack food maker is recalling about 3 million pounds of frozen pizza, mozzarella bites, Philly cheese steaks and other products linked to a rare and potentially dangerous outbreak of E. coli poisoning.
Rich Products Corp. of Buffalo, N.Y., is pulling all products manufactured at its Waycross, Ga., plant. The snacks have best buy dates from Jan. 1 2013 through Sept. 29, 2014, according to a press release.
The foods may be contaminated with the bacterium E. coli O121, which already has sickened 24 people in 15 states who ate certain Farm Rich and Market Day frozen chicken quesadillas, pizza slices and other snack foods. Seven people have been hospitalized, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
