Totino's and Jeno's Frozen Pizzas Recalled Due to Possible E. coli Contamination

It's already sickened 21 people across the country and now two popular frozen pizza brands are under recall.

General Mills is recalling more than four hundred thousand cases of Totino's and Jeno's frozen pizzas, because the pepperoni topping may be contaminated with E. coli.

Federal authorities say 21 people in ten states have gotten sick from E. coli. At least nine say they ate the recalled pizzas before getting sick.

Late Thursday afternoon, General Mills announced a voluntary nationwide recall. However, they tell us they've checked their plants and productions lines and haven't found any E. coli, but they do want you to be safe so this is the warning tonight:

"First thing they need to do is check the UPC codes, make sure they're applicable. Either bring them back to the stores for a refund or exchange by November 18th," said Eddie Owens with United Grocery Stores.

For more information call General mills at 1-800-949-9055.
