E. Coli Outbreak Sends Millions of Frozen Pizzas Packing
Uh oh! Put down your Farm Rich Mini Pizza Slices and Stuffed Crust Pizza Dippers! And any of these other products. They're kind of gross (and you totally know it). Also, they may be contaminated with a rare, potentially lethal strain of E. coli.
NBC reports that a whopping 10 million pounds of Farm Rich and Market Day products have been recalled due to potential contamination. That's a big jump from their initial product recall last week, which accounted for fewer than 200,000 lbs.
Luckily, 'only' 3 million of those pounds have actually hit marketplaces—the rest are tucked away at the warehouse, where they can fester away in peace and quiet. So far, there have been 24 reported cases related to Rich's frozen snack products, spread across 15 states. Hopefully the recall will prevent any further incidences.
If you're concerned about a product you've purchased, you can view the full list on the Rich Products Corporation website.
