5 million Frozen Pizzas Recalled
By: Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - General Mills says it's recalling about 5 million frozen pizzas due to possible E. coli contamination.

The pizzas are sold nationwide under the Totino's and Jeno's labels.

General Mills says state and federal authorities have been investigating 21 E. coli cases in 10 states. Nine of the 21 people reported eating Totino's or Jeno's pizza with pepperoni topping at some point before becoming ill. Authorities say eight people have been hospitalized, and four have developed a type of kidney failure.

The voluntary recall covers pizzas with pepperoni produced since July, when the first of the E. coli cases occurred.

The company asks consumers to throw away the recalled pizzas. Replacements will be provided.
