Fears over E. coli contamination are leading to an even broader recall of Farm Rich frozen foods.
The recall — which was announced last month — is now being expanded to all products produced at the company’s Waycross, Ga., plant.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the wider recall in a release Friday. The recall covers a series of frozen food snacks that includes Pizzatas, Pizza Dippers, Mini Quesadillas and other frozen foods. Farm Rich has alerted all distributors and other customers to stop selling and destroy the products being recalled.
The recall began after 24 people were sickened by E. coli over a 15-state area. Interviews with those afflicted identified that all had eaten Farm Rich products in the recent past. The recall of products applies to those packages with “Best by” dates ranging from Jan. 1, 2013 to Sept. 29, 2014.
Customers with any packages of the recalled items should contact Farm Rich customer service at (888) 220-5955. The full list of products being recalled is available on the FDA’s website.
