2 Michigan Residents Ill From E. Coli, Food Recalled

Posted:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Two people in Michigan have become sick from an outbreak of E. coli infections linked to frozen snack foods marketed to children.

State agencies say the two who became ill are among at least 24 people infected in 15 states.

An investigation detected E. coli in an open package of Farm Rich brand frozen chicken quesadillas at an ill person's home in New York.

The Buffalo, N.Y.-based Rich Products Corp. has recalled quesadillas, mozzarella bites, mini pizza slices and other frozen products made in November. The Michigan Departments of Community Health and Agriculture and Rural Development say residents should check their freezers for the recalled products and consult a doctor if they have bloody diarrhea.
