Frozen pizza recall

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Rich Products Corp., of Buffalo, N.Y., has expanded its frozen foods recall because of the high risk of E. coli contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced.

The recall involves heat-treated, not fully cooked frozen pizzas, cheeseburgers, sandwiches, quesadillas, and snacks made at the plant in Georgia with "Best by" dates ranging from January 1, 2013 to September 29, 2014.

The products were made between July 1, 2011, and March 29, 2013, and then distributed for sale at stores and restaurants all over the country.

The recall was prompted by reports of illnesses linked to E. coli. The outbreak includes 24 cases in 15 states that led to seven hospitalizations and one case of kidney failure, the USDA said.

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service has classified this as a Class I recall, which means "there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death," according to its website.
