NEW YORK, N.Y. -

Health officials say at least 24-people have become sick from an outbreak of e-coli infections linked to frozen snack foods marketed to children. Eight people, mostly younger children and teenagers, ended up in the hospital.

An investigation detected e-coli in an open package of Farm Rich brand frozen chicken quesadillas at the home of someone who became sick.

On Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported illnesses in 15-states, including Virginia.

The quesadillas, mozzarella bites, and other frozen products made in November are under the recall.
