Texas is among states involved in a Department of Agriculture recall of chicken quesadillas and other frozen meals from Rich Products of Buffalo, New York.

Included in the recall:  Farm Rich mini pizza slices; the mini quesadillas, and Farm Rich philly cheese steaks. 

Officials report 24 cases of E coli illness in 15 states, Texas included.

The products involved in the recall were produced in November last year and distributed nationwide.  USDA officials say throw them out if they’re in your freezer.
