WASHINGTON – Ruiz Food Products Inc. recalled approximately 55,013 lbs. of frozen, not ready-to-eat (NRTE) breakfast burrito products containing eggs, sausage, and cheese that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of plastic, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the US Dept. of Agriculture reported.

The problem was discovered when Ruiz notified FSIS of three consumer complaints involving pieces of white, semi-rigid plastic found in the product.

The frozen, NRTE breakfast burrito products were produced on Oct. 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 affected products bear establishment number “EST 45694” printed on the value pack bag and the individual wrappings, next to the lot code. FSIS said the items were shipped to foodservice establishments nationwide. 

The agency is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
