Tainted food items can cause kidney failure

— Food items that were distributed in Indiana are being voluntarily recalled by Rich Products Corp., following a multistate outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli 0121 (E. coli).

“Two cases have been reported in Indiana,” said Indiana State Department of Health spokesperson Amanda Turney April 9.

Most of the recalled items, including mini frozen pizzas, mozzarella bites and mini quesadillas, among others, are under the brand names Farm Rich® and Market Day®. The recall covers all products produced at the company’s Waycross, Ga., plant with “Best by” dates ranging from Jan. 1, 2013, to Sept. 29, 2014.

Hoosiers are encouraged to check their freezers for these items, which have a shelf life of about 18 months. Customers who have purchased them or have questions should contact Rich Products Corp. consumer relations at 888-220-5955 from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. weekdays or visit the company Web site at www.farmrich.com.

Symptoms of E. coli 0121 include mild to severe diarrhea, often bloody, and abdominal cramps. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within five to seven days, certain individuals can develop a complication called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which can cause the kidneys to fail. HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly.

Persons with symptoms should contact their health care providers.

A full list of recalled items can be viewed at www.fsis.usda.gov/News_&_Events/Recall_025_2013_Expanded/index.asp.

The retail distribution list is posted on the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service Web site at www.fsis.usda.gov/FSIS_Recalls/Open_Federal_Cases/index.asp.

To learn more about this outbreak, persons may visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Web site at www.cdc.gov/ecoli/2013/O121-03-13/.
