The Ministry of Health has advised persons in possession of these pizza products with the above brand names and product codes to refrain from using them and return them to the point of sale.

These products are suspected to be contaminated with E.coli O157 and maybe linked to an outbreak of E.coli 0157:H7 illnesses, found in several states in the US.

Persons, who are immuno-compromised or on chemotherapy, the elderly, and children are particularly susceptible to foodborne illnesses.

The E.coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause severe bloody diarrhoea and abdominal cramps, two to eight days after infection; and dehydration.  Persons, who are ill with diarrhoea, within a week of consuming these frozen pizzas, should seek medical attention immediately.

The Ministry of Health has pointed out that the local agent, SBI Distributors, is cooperating with that department to ensure that only products which are safe are offered to the public.

Meanwhile, the Ministry’s Environmental Health Officers are checking distribution points and retail outlets to make sure that all recalled products are removed from their shelves.
