If you have watched the news recently, FarmRich recalled many of their products produced in a Georgia facility because of a dangerous E Coli outbreak. To learn more about the strain of Ecoli and general information about the outbreak, please refer to this article published by USA Today “Farm Rich brand frozen foods recall expands to 10.5 million pounds”
The following message comes form an email I received from FarmRich. If any of you have been wondering about the details of the recent recall, and which products were not affected please see the information provided below. If you have questions, there is a call-in number below for you to dial.
Wishing all of my readers safety and good health!
Today we announced the decision to move forward with an expanded, comprehensive recall of all Farm Rich products produced in our Waycross, Georgia, facility.
This recall includes:
Farm Rich Mini Quesadillas, Farm Rich Mini Pizza Slices, Farm Rich Mozzarella Bites, Farm Rich Philly Cheese Steaks and Farm Rich Mini Bacon Cheeseburgers with Best By Dates from January 1, 2013 to September 29, 2014.
You may be aware that we recalled several of our products last week because of possible E. coli contamination. Since then we have been putting all possible resources against finding the source of this problem and together with many leading scientific experts, we still can’t find the answer. This is simply unacceptable to us.
We have no information of any illnesses associated with these products included in the expanded recall, but your safety and the safety of all of our customers is our absolute number-one priority.
To eliminate any risk, and to ensure your safety and well-being, we are voluntarily recalling these products immediately.
“It saddens us deeply that anyone has become ill after consuming Farm Rich products,” said Bill Gisel, Rich’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “When it became apparent to us that despite the expertise of the USDA, FDA, the scientific community and our own experts, that identification of a specific cause was not going to be a simple or short process, we decided to act proactively to expand the recall.”
Please note that this recall DOES NOT include:
- Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks – all sizes
- Farm Rich Jalapeño Peppers – all sizes
- Farm Rich Marinara Stuffed Mozzarella Sticks – all sizes
- Farm Rich Breaded Mushrooms – all sizes
- Farm Rich Stuffed Pretzel Bites – all sizes
- Farm Rich Queso Cheese Bites – all sizes
