Default Pizza recall

I heard about this from the wife and happened to have run across the info on another forum..........

5 million frozen pizzas recalled

The Associated Press
Nov. 1, 2007 02:41 PM
MINNEAPOLIS - General Mills on Thursday recalled about 5 million frozen pizzas sold nationwide under the Totino'* and Jeno'* labels because of possible E. coli contamination.

The problem may have come from pepperoni on pizzas produced at a General Mills plant in Ohio, the suburban Minneapolis-based company said. It said the pepperoni itself came from a separate supplier, not produced at the plant itself.

The voluntary recall covers pizzas containing pepperoni that have been produced since July, when the first of 21 E. coli illnesses under investigation by state and federal authorities emerged.



Nine of the 21 people reported eating Totino'* or Jeno'* pizza with pepperoni topping at some point before becoming ill. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that eight of the victims have been hospitalized, and four have developed a type of kidney failure.

Eight of the cases were reported in Tennessee, with the other cases found in smaller numbers in Kentucky, Missouri, New York, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Wisconsin and South Dakota.

"We took action on that basis as a precaution, because of the possibility that a link might exist," said General Mills spokesman Tom Forsythe. "However, to date we have found no E. coli in our plant, and we have found no E. coli in our products."

The company asks consumers to throw away recalled pizzas. They can get replacements by clipping the bar code from the box and mailing it with their name and address to Totino'*/Jeno'*, P.O. Box 200 - Pizza, Minneapolis, MN 55440-0200.

Symptoms of E. coli can include stomach cramps and diarrhea. People typically are ill for two to five days but can develop complications including kidney failure.

In late September, the Topps Meat Co. recalled 21.7 million pounds of frozen hamburger patties after 40 people in eight states got sick from contaminated beef believed to have been imported from Canada. The New Jersey-based company shut down several days later.

The specific products in the recall, with SKU, include:

Totino'* Party Supreme, 42800-10700.

Totino'* Three Meat, 42800-10800.

Totino'* Pepperoni, 42800-11400.

Totino'* Pepperoni, 42800-92114.

Totino'* Classic Pepperoni, 42800-11402.

Totino'* Pepperoni Trio, 42800-72157.

Totino'* Party Combo, 42800-11600.

Totino'* Combo, 42800-92116.

Jeno'* Crisp n Tasty Supreme, 35300-00561.

Jeno'* Crisp n Tasty Pepperoni, 35300-00572.

Jeno'* Crisp n Tasty Combo, 35300-00576.

Honestly, I was drunk (and eating pizza) when I saw this on the news. And, I said, "Well looks like I'm going to be recalling some pizza...INTO MY MOUTH." My room mate thought it was pretty funny.

Uh oh, we have Jeno'* pizzas in the freezer. Good thing I was eating Little Caesars.
