Concern over “small rocks” prompts El Monterey wrap recall

in Food


A Texas company is recalling more than 246,000 pounds of frozen breakfast wraps sold nationwide over fears the bacon may be contaminated with extraneous materials, especially small rocks.

The El Monterey frozen breakfast wraps, which also contain egg, potato and cheese, and were produced in January by Ruiz Foods Products in Denison, Texas.

The US Department of Agriculture said in a statement that the company received a report of a potential injury associated with consumption of the product. No additional reports of illness or injury have been reported to date.

Consumers who purchased the products should throw them away or return them to the place of purchase, according to the FDA.

About 246,514 pounds of products are affected by the recall. They have “best if used by” dates of 01/17/2020 and 01/18/2020, and lot codes 19017 and 19018.
