Uncle Ben's Infused Rice Recalled

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Food and Drug Administration is warning against eating Uncle Ben's rice products served at schools, restaurants, hospitals and other food service institutions.

Children in three states have had skin reactions and other symptoms that were linked to the rice. A Mississippi firm -- Mars Foodservices -- is recalling 5- and 25-pound bags of the rice. Uncle Ben's ready-to-eat, boxed, bagged and cup products in grocery stores are not linked to the illnesses and have not been recalled.
