The products subject to recall bear establishment number "EST. 45434" inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Northern California. The tamale products are served to consumers from a deli counter at retailers.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to throw them away or return to the place of purchase.
