General Mills Recalls Frozen Pizza

It's the largest frozen pizza recall of all time. In fact, it may be the only frozen pizza recall ever. General Mills is voluntarily recalling 5 million frozen pizzas sold under their Totinos and Jenos brand names because of possible E. coli contamination.

The problem may be with pepperoni on the pizzas which was added at a plant in Ohio. The pepperoni came from a separate supplier. There have been 21 cases of E. coli under investigation since July and 9 of the 21 infected people report eating either Totinos or Jenos pizza before they became ill.

General Mills said they initiated the recall as a precaution, no link has been established between their pizzas and the E. coli cases and inspections of their plants and products has not found any E. coli contamination.

General Mills asks that you throw away any frozen pizza involved in the recall but that you can get a replacement by clipping the bar code from the box and mailing it with their name and address to Totino's/Jeno's, P.O. Box 200 -- Pizza, Minneapolis, MN 55440-0200.
