Rich Products Corp. food recall includes Indiana

Check freezer for Farm Rich® and Market Day® items

INDIANAPOLIS — Food items that were distributed in Indiana are being voluntarily recalled by Rich Products Corp., following a multi-state outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli 0121(E. coli). Two cases have been reported in Indiana.

Most of the recalled items, including mini frozen pizzas, mozzarella bites and mini quesadillas, among others, are under the brand names Farm Rich® and Market Day®. The recall covers all products produced at the company’s Waycross, Ga., plant with "Best by" dates ranging from Jan. 1, 2013, to Sept. 29, 2014.

Hoosiers are encouraged to check their freezers for these items, which have a shelf life of about 18 months. Customers who have purchased these items or have questions should contact Rich Products Corp. consumer relations at 888-220-5955 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday or visit the company website at www.farmrich.com.

Symptoms of E. coli 0121 include mild to severe diarrhea, often bloody, and abdominal cramps. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within five to seven days, certain individuals can develop a complication called hemolytic uremic syndrome, which can cause the kidneys to fail. HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly.

Contact your health care provider if you or a family member has symptoms of E. coli 0121.

The retail distribution list(s) is posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/FSIS_Recalls/Open_Federal_Cases/index.asp.
