More than 2.4 million pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat taquitos are being recalled amid concerns that they may be contaminated with salmonella and listeria monocytogenes, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The taquitos under recall were produced by Ruiz Food Products Inc. between July 1 and Oct. 1. They were shipped to distributors nationwide and include the establishment numbers “17523A or P-17523A” and “45694 or P-45694” in the USDA mark of inspection, officials said.
According to the USDA, the following products fall under the recall:
- 4.5-lb. cardboard cases containing 24-count Go-Go Taquitos “Beef Taco & Cheese Taquitos,” with a case code 86183 printed on the label
- 4.5-lb. cardboard cases containing 24-count Go-Go Taquitos “Buffalo Style Cooked Glazed Chicken Taquitos,” with a case code 86006 printed on the label
- 4.5-lb. cardboard cases containing 24-count Go-Go Taquitos “Chipotle Chicken Wrapped in A Battered Flour Tortilla,” with a case code 86019 printed on the label
The recall was issued after employees of Ruiz Foods Products Inc. learned earlier this week that diced onions used in the taquitos were being recalled by the company’s supplier due to concerns over salmonella and listeria monocytogenes.
Officials with the USDA said Friday that no known illnesses have been associated with the recall.
