Uncle Ben's recalls large rice bags sold in Texas

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — State health officials are reminding consumers about a nationwide recall of Uncle Ben's infused rice products in Texas.

The Department of State Health Services said Sunday that the recalled 5- and 25-pound bags of Uncle Ben's rice are primarily purchased by institutional settings such as schools and prisons. Some warehouse club retailers also stock the bags.

Health officials say the cause of the illness remains undetermined.

Mars Foodservices US says it voluntarily recalled the products "out of an abundance of caution."

The recall includes:
