Breakfast Burritos Recalled: May contain plastic
Twenty-eight tons of breakfast burritos are being recalled because they may contain pieces of plastic.
The United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service has announced that Ruiz Food Products is recalling approximately 55,013 pounds of frozen, not ready-to-eat breakfast burrito products containing eggs, sausage, and cheese that may be contaminated with plastic.
The problem was discovered when the company received complaints from three customers who found white plastic in the product.
There have been no confirmed reports of injuries due to the consumption of these products, according to the USDA.
Officials are concerned that some of the burritos, which were distributed nationwide, may be in people's freezers.
Anyone who has the recalled burritos shouldn't eat them, but either throw them away or return them to the store for a refund.
The frozen, breakfast burrito products were produced on October 15, 2019.
The following products are subject to recall:
- 3.38-lb. Value Pack, containing 12 individually wrapped, 4.5-oz. “EL MONTEREY Signature BURRITO EGG, SAUSAGE & CHEESE” with a “Best if Used By” date of 01/15/2021 and a lot code of 19288.
- The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST 45694” printed on the value pack bag and the individual wrappings, next to the lot code.
