E-Coli outbreak in children's frozen food

Saturday, March 30, 2013

Health officials say at least 24 people have become sick from an outbreak of E-Coli linked to frozen foods marketed to children.

An investigation detected E-Coli in an open package of Farm Rich brand frozen chicken quesadillas.

No one has died from the illness, but eight people, mostly children and teens have been hospitalized.

Rich Products Corporation is now recalling nearly 200,000 pounds of the food which also includes frozen mini pizza slices and mozzarella bites.

The products were produced last year between November 12th and 19th.
