A New York snack food maker is recalling 10 million pounds of frozen pizza, mozzarella bites, Philly cheesesteaks and other products linked to a rare and potentially dangerous outbreak of E. coli poisoning, according to NBC News.



The site reports a Rich Products Corp. spokesman said three million pounds of the products were recalled, but he later confirmed that the company also had control of seven million pounds of the frozen items that had not reached stores.

The foods may be contaminated with the bacterium E. coli O121, which already has sickened 24 people in 15 states who ate certain frozen chicken quesadillas, pizza slices and other snack foods, according to NBC News.
