Mars Foodservices is recalling Uncle Ben's Infused Rice after three Houston schools reported people experiencing mild flushing and rashes after eating the flavored rice.

The recall only affects the infused rice, which is sold in large bags through wholesale distributors.

It doesn't affect anything sold in grocery stores.

The company said it is "continuing to work closely" with the Food and Drug Administration to investigate the matter.
