WASHINGTON (AP) — Hundreds of thousands of pounds of frozen food recalled amid an E. coli scare may have been served in schools.

That’s according to the company that manufactured the items. Rich Products Corp. recalled 10 million pounds of frozen food items over the past two weeks after 27 E. coli illnesses in 15 states were linked to their foods.

Of that, the Buffalo, N.Y.-based company estimates that about 3 million pounds may still be in the marketplace and approximately 300,000 pounds may have ended up in school lunchrooms.

Rich Products spokesman Dwight Gram says the main items shipped to schools were labeled as pizza dippers and pepperoni pizzatas.

E. coli infection can cause mild diarrhea or more severe complications, including kidney damage.
