NEW YORK (AP) - 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.
    
No one has died, but eight people, mostly kids or teens, were hospitalized.
    
An investigation detected E. coli in an open package of Farm Rich brand frozen chicken quesadillas at an ill person's home.
    
On Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported illnesses in Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
