Rich Products Expands Food Recall Based On E. Coli Risk

April 5, 2013

Western New York based Rich Products has expanded its voluntary recall of food products based on the possibility that they could cause E. coli poisoning.  Buffalo residents should be aware of this recall, as it includes products available to consumers in New York State.  Symptoms of E. coli infection include stomach cramps, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.

Last week, Rich Products recalled several products distributed under the Farm Rich Products label following an E. coli outbreak.  Yesterday, the recall was expanded to include all products manufactured in Rich’s Waycroft, Georgia facility.

These products were distributed throughout the United States under the names Farm Rich, Market Day and Schwan’s.  They have “Best By” dates ranging from January 1, 2013 to September 29, 2014.  While there have been no cases of E. coli poisoning associated with the products in the expanded recall, Rich Products has chosen to expand the scope of the recall because they could not be positive that these products were free from contamination.
