Frozen food maker Farm Rich has issued a recall for some of their products, and some have been sold here in the Upper Peninsula.
E. coli was found in packages of Farm Rich frozen quesadillas, mini pizza slices and mozzarella cheese bites. According to Super One Foods, the mozzarella cheese bites were the only product affected by the recall.
Super One stores have pulled the affected products from their shelves, and they're telling customers that purchased the product to return it for a refund.
"If you have it at home just bring it back to Super One in Negaunee or Super One in Marquette and we'll give you your money back and we'll take it from there, all we have to do is destroy the product after we receive it," said Paul LaCombe of Super One Foods.
According to the Center for Disease Control, 24 people across the country have reported illness from the recalled product. The products were made between November 12 and November 19. The UPC code on the recalled product is 0 4132237443 1.
