In what I believe is a government led conspiricy to cripple college-aged stoners, 5 million frozen pizzas and pizza rolls are being recalled after 21 cases were found infested with E. Coli.
The recalled popular frozen pizza brands have been tied to 21 reported cases of E.coli 0157:H7 illness in ten states, occurred between July 20 and October 10, said the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). Nine of Twenty-one people became ill after eating Totino’s or Jeno’s pepperoni pizzas, which are reportedly the country’s best selling economy frozen pizza brands.
Eight of the twenty-one people have gotten sick in Tennessee. Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Wisconsin and South Dakota states also reported the cases of illness.
General Mills said it has issued the recall as a precaution. “We took action on that basis as a precaution, because of the possibility that a link might exist,” said General Mills spokesman Tom Forsythe. “However, to date we have found no E.coli in our plant, and we have found no E. coli in our products.”
While this is devistating to Totino’s, expect Hot Pocket’s sales to skyrocket, peticularly after Sunday’s airing of Adult Swim.
