Frozen foods made at Georgia plant recalled

Posted: Updated:

Rich Products Corporation has recalled all of its frozen snack foods produced at its Waycross, GA, plant.

The Buffalo, NY, company last week announced a voluntary recall of certain Farm Rich and Market Day products because of possible E. coli contamination. It has now expanded the recall.

The Centers for Disease Control said 27 people in 15 states have become ill with E. coli, and information points to Farm Rich products as one likely source. The number of ill persons identified in each state is as follows: Alabama (1), Arkansas (1), Illinois (2), Indiana (2), Michigan (3), Mississippi (1), New York (4), Ohio (3), Pennsylvania (1), South Dakota (1), Texas (3), Utah (1), Virginia (1), Washington (1), and Wisconsin (2).

The CDC said officials have identified the outbreak strain in two Farm Rich products - frozen mini pizza slices and frozen chicken quesadillas - collected from the Texas and New York homes of two people who became ill.

The recalled products have "best by" dates from Jan. 1, 2013 to Sept. 29, 2014.
