Health officials reported last month that at least 24 people have become sick from an outbreak of E. coli infections linked to frozen snack foods marketed to children. Fortunately, there have been no reports of deaths. At press time eight people, mostly children or teens, had been hospitalized. An investigation detected E. coli in an open package of Farm Rich brand frozen chicken quesadillas at an ill person’s home.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported illnesses in Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. Rich Products Corp., based in Buffalo, N.Y., has recalled quesadillas, mozzarella bites and other frozen products made in November.
