Health officials are reporting at least 24 people have gotten sick from an outbreak of E. coli infections linked to frozen snack foods. No one has died, but eight people, mostly kids and teens, were hospitalized.

An investigation detected E. coli in an open package of Farm Rich brand frozen chicken quesadillas at an ill person's home.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported illnesses in 15 states, including Wisconsin. The Buffalo, New York-based Rich Products Corp. has recalled quesadillas, mozzarella bites and other frozen products made in November.
