E. coli O157:H7: an unwanted topping for 5 million frozen pizzas
Here we go again! E. coli O157:H7 is suspected of being a contaminant in/on possibly 5 million pizzas with the Totini's or Jeno's label that contain pepperoni. Nothing is confirmed yet but a recall has been issued and an investigation is underway after 21 people have reported illness and 8 were hospitalized. Check your freezer and if you have any of the recalled pizzas - dispose of them and save the barcode to send in to the company for a refund. If you have already had diarrhea and stomach cramps occurring 2 - 5 days after ingestion of pepperoni pizza - contact your local health department.
These recalls of food products with suspected contamination with the foodborne nanobugs are popping up about one a month - we can't ignore them. I am a little mystified about the pepperoni harboring E. coli O157:H7 -it is not the usual culprit - more likely a ground beef topping. Guess we will find out after the investigation is complete. But quite honestly, it is hard to keep tract of the final outcomes of these investigations - there are so many.
