Farm Rich Products Recall Information


I received the following email today about the Farm Rich Products Recall so I just wanted to let everyone know abut this information in case you missed it in your email.

Dear Farm Rich Friends,

Today we announced the decision to move forward with an expanded, comprehensive recall of all Farm Rich products produced in our Waycross, Georgia, facility. This recall includes Farm Rich Mini Quesadillas, Farm Rich Mini Pizza Slices, Farm Rich Mozzarella Bites, Farm Rich Philly Cheese Steaks and Farm Rich Mini Bacon Cheeseburgers with Best By Dates from January 1, 2013 to September 29, 2014.

You may be aware that we recalled several of our products last week because of possible E. coli contamination. Since then we have been putting all possible resources against finding the source of this problem and together with many leading scientific experts, we still can’t find the answer. This is simply unacceptable to us.

We have no information of any illnesses associated with these products included in the expanded recall, but your safety and the safety of all of our customers is our absolute number-one priority.

To eliminate any risk, and to ensure your safety and well-being, we are voluntarily recalling these products immediately.

“It saddens us deeply that anyone has become ill after consuming Farm Rich products,” said Bill Gisel, Rich’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “When it became apparent to us that despite the expertise of the USDA, FDA, the scientific community and our own experts, that identification of a specific cause was not going to be a simple or short process, we decided to act proactively to expand the recall.”

Please note that this recall DOES NOT include:
•Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks – all sizes
•Farm Rich Jalapeño Peppers – all sizes
•Farm Rich Marinara Stuffed Mozzarella Sticks – all sizes
•Farm Rich Breaded Mushrooms – all sizes
•Farm Rich Stuffed Pretzel Bites – all sizes
•Farm Rich Queso Cheese Bites – all sizes
•Farm Rich Pepper Bites – all sizes
•Farm Rich Onion Rings – all sizes
•Farm Rich Meatballs – all varieties and all sizes
•Farm Rich French Toast Sticks – all varieties and all sizes

These products are manufactured in different facilities and are not affected by this recall.

If you have any of these recalled products in your freezer, please contact our 24-hour, toll-free Consumer Relations Helpline at 1-888-220-5955, or visit for more information.

We apologize to you and your family, and thank you for your continued support.

TMR Frugal Living Tip #100- Cut Facial Wipes in Half!

Today’s frugal living tip is to cut your facial wipes in half! I know I definitely do not need to use a whole facial wipe when removing makeup. I mostly use them to remove eye makeup as I find it’s gentler on my eyes and removes more than eye makeup remover. I use both sides to get the maximum benefit. My mom cuts hers into quarters extending it even further. I find I do need at least half for myself.

It’s really easy to do though I would advise washing your scissors before hand to make it more sanitary. Cutting them in half will double your savings and one pack will last twice as long. It’s also less wasteful.

You can also apply this tip to fabric sheets and even to cotton square pads. I prefer to use cotton balls and stock up when on sale with a coupon. I normally buy the store brand as I can get better deals such as CVS or Target.
