Breakfast burritos recalled after consumers find ‘small rocks’ inside

(WRIC) — Ruiz Foods Inc., is recalling over 246,000 pounds of frozen breakfast burritos after consumers found “small rocks” inside them.

The recall was issued Friday by Ruiz Foods, after reporting the problem to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The eight packs of the frozen El Monterey egg, potato, bacon and cheese sauce breakfast wraps that have been recalled have “best by” dates of dates of Jan. 17, 2020, and Jan. 18, 2020, and lot codes of 19017 and 19018.

Three people reported to Ruiz Foods that they found the small rocks inside breakfast burritos, necessitating the recall.

One person even reported to the company they were injured by biting into the burrito, according to the FSIS.

The burrito wraps were sent to stores across the country.
