The problem was uncovered by state and federal authorities investigating 21 occurrences of E. coli-related illnesses in 10 states. The earliest reported case occurred July 20, and the latest case reported occurred Oct. 10.
 
Nine of the 21 people reported having eaten Totino's or Jeno's pizza with pepperoni topping at some point prior to becoming ill. Totino's and Jeno's have distributed more than 120 million pizzas nationwide since July 1.
