The frozen breakfast wraps could have tiny rocks inside.
Before you heat up a breakfast burrito from the freezer, you better check the package. A recall has been issued for select El Monterey Egg, Potato, Bacon and Cheese Sauce Breakfast Wraps. The company that makes the wraps, Ruiz Foods Products Inc., issued the recall on June 14, 2019, in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. The breakfast wraps could contain small foreign material, including small rocks.
The recall includes 246,514 pounds of frozen, heat-to-eat breakfast wrap products. The wraps came in an eight-pack and were sold to retail stores around the country.
The package is labeled “EL MONTEREY EGG, POTATO, BACON & CHEESE SAUCE BREAKFAST WRAPS” with “Best If Used By” dates of 01/17/2020 and 01/18/2020 with lot codes of 19017 and 19018. The affected products also have the number “EST. 17523A” printed on the package.
The recall was issued after three consumers reported problems to Ruiz Foods. One person reported a possible injury from eating the wraps. The products are under a Class I recall, meaning ingesting the product could cause serious illness or death. If you have these wraps in your freezer, you should throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
