RECALL: Two in Michigan are sick from E. Coli outbreak associated with recalled frozen foods

Two people in Michigan are now sick after an E coli outbreak that started with recalled frozen snack foods.

The state health department says these two victims are among at least 24 people infected in 15 states.

We first reported this recall last week when New York's Rich Products Corporation recalled roughly 196,222 pounds of frozen chicken quesadilla and other snacks that may have been contaminated with E coli.

Some of the products are sold in grocery stores across Michigan. The recalled products were produced between November 12, 2012 and November 19, 2012 and then distributed nationwide.

If you have questions regarding the recall or you would like to receive a refund, you should contact the company's consumer line at (888) 220-5955 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST Monday through Friday, or visit their website at www.farmrich.com .
