Totino's and Jeno's pizza recalled due to E. coli

Totino's and Jeno's pizza recalled due to E. coli

Thu Nov 1, 3:50 PM ET


Almost five million Totino's and Jeno's frozen pizzas with pepperoni toppings are being recalled because the pepperoni may be contaminated with E. coli, General Mills Inc said on Thursday.


General Mills, which owns the Totino's and Jeno's brands, said the recall affects about 414,000 cases of pizza products currently in stores and all similar pizza products that might be in consumers' freezers. Each case contains 12 pizzas.


The possible E. coli contamination was uncovered by state and federal authorities investigating 21 E. coli-related illnesses in 10 states.


General Mills said nine of the 21 people reported having eaten Totino's or Jeno's pizza with pepperoni topping at some point before becoming ill.


The people became ill between July 20 and October 10, the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service said, adding that all the patients recovered.


The people did not have packages with dates codes or other information General Mills needs to narrow down which pizzas might be affected, General Mills spokesman Tom Forsythe said, adding that, for the same reason, the company could not determine which of its suppliers provided the pepperoni.


E.coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacteria that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. The very young, seniors and persons with compromised immune systems are the most vulnerable to food borne disease.


The recall includes eight types of Totino's brand frozen pizza and three types of Jeno's brand frozen pizza with pepperoni topping, or pepperoni in combination with other toppings.


The frozen pizzas were produced in its Wellston, Ohio, plant and distributed throughout the United States. The plant is currently making other pizzas, but not with pepperoni, General Mills spokesman Tom Forsythe said.


Forsythe said the company had yet to determine the cost of the recall.
General Mills shares were down $1.08, or 1.87 percent, at $56.65 late on Thursday afternoon on the New York Stock Exchange. The stock is down 1.7 percent this year, compared with a 0.35 percent increase for the Standard & Poor's packaged foods index.

Re: Totino's and Jeno's pizza recalled due to E. coli

If you haven't noticed a trend yet, all the food items that have been recalled this second half of the year are on average around a dollar-fifty.

Hint: If you're paying that little for a meal that you can't see is being cooked, you're likely asking for trouble.
It takes too much these days to make a good meal out of that price, so guess what, corners are being cut to make a profit.

Sure. If you like that unleavened bread with a bit of pasta sauce and cheese on it then it's great.

Yes. The point is do you want to risk that?
The same thing went for the Banquet pot pies.
I had three of them in my freezer but I just cooked them and gave them to the dog.

It's a buck. The possibility of getting sick over something like that isn't worth it.

It really is. It was so dry to me and had the urge to vomit.
And it's nice that they tell us now that there was an issue.
Three months to see a pattern?
General Mills knows they're wrong with that.

Eating Totino's frozen cheese pizzas used to be my dirty little secret.

I love(d) it so much, from the crispy crust (of course you have to cook it right on the oven shelf for a cripsy crust, not on a cookie sheet which gives it a softer crust), to the tangy sauce, to the cheese. And I love(d) the way it sort of bubbles up from the crust upward.

And it was good piping hot and for leftovers straight out of the fridge.

But they ruined it....!! I stopped buying it for a couple years, then next time I tried it, they had changed the real cheese to a cheese substitute, and it's not good and I don't buy it any more.

So sad to have something you love ruined.

(I never ate the pepperoni or any one besides the plain cheese and the four cheese.)

Yeah I cook it on tin foil......and don't forget to add a little salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper before you stick it in the oven.

Because they cost 20 cents.

Re: Totino's and Jeno's pizza recalled due to E. coli

I think E. coli can survive at high temperatures, like around 65 C. Not all parts of the pizza are going to reach a much higher temperature when you microwave it.
