Frozen food recalled because of E. coli outbreak

OLYMPIA — The state Department of Health is warning people about a recall of frozen food related to a national outbreak of E. coli.

That outbreak has sickened 27 people from 15 states, including a Pierce County woman in her 20s.

The frozen products in the recall come from Farm Rich, Market Day and Schwan’s brands. State officials say the food was distributed throughout Washington. It includes a variety of frozen snacks.

E. coli can make people very sick and is sometime life threatening.

State health officials encourage people to visit the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website — http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm346633.htm — for a full list of the food being recalled.
