BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Rich Products Corp. is now recalling all its frozen snack foods produced at its Waycross, Ga., plant.

The Buffalo, N.Y., company announced last week a voluntary recall of certain Farm Rich and Market Day products because of possible E. coli contamination. It has now expanded the recall.

The Centers for Disease Control said 27 people in 15 states have become ill with E. coli, and information points to Farm Rich products as one likely source.

The CDC said officials have identified the outbreak strain in two Farm Rich products -- frozen Mini Pizza Slices and frozen chicken quesadillas -- collected from the Texas and New York homes of two people who became ill.

As of April 5, three people in Texas have gotten sick.

The recalled products have "best by" dates from Jan. 1, 2013, to Sept. 29, 2014.
