ruizfood dec11 lt

Ruiz Food Products Inc. is recalling frozen sausage breakfast burrito products due to possible presence of plastic materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service or FSIS said in a statement.

The recall was initiated after the company notified FSIS of three consumer complaints involving pieces of white, semi-rigid plastic found in the product. However, there were no confirmed reports of injuries due to consumption of these recalled burrito products.

Ruiz Food's recall involves around 55,013 pounds of frozen, not ready-to-eat or NRTE breakfast burrito products containing eggs, sausage, and cheese. The affected products are named "El Monterey Signature Burrito Egg, Sausage & Cheese" produced on October 15, 2019 with a "Best if Used By" date of 01/15/2021.

The packages bear establishment number "EST 45694" printed on the value pack bag and the individual wrappings. The items were shipped to retail locations across the nation.

The latest USDA recall is Class I, which indicates a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.

In other instances, Kraft Heinz Food Co. also recently recalled select varieties of Breakstone's Cottage Cheese products, citing potential contamination of red plastic and metal pieces.

In mid - October, grocery chain Publix Super Markets, Inc. recalled Deli White American Cheese and Hannaford recalled white American Cheese, citing that they may contain foreign materials.
