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 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.

“The company received a report of a potential injury associated with the consumption of this product,” the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said. “FSIS has received no additional reports of injury or illness from consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.”

Anyone who’s bought the products is urged to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
The products recalled are about 246,514 pounds, and have “best if used by” dates of 01/17/2020 and 01/18/2020, and lot codes 19017 and 19018.

Flour Recall

This recall comes after grocery chain Aldi has issued a recall of its all-purpose flour over a possible E. coli contamination.

The recall affects 5-pound bags of Bakers Corner All Purpose Flour sold at Aldi stores in 11 states: Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia.

The recalled flour has a best used by date of Dec. 2, 2019, as well as a UPC code of 041498130404.

In a statement, Aldi advised customers who have purchased the recalled flour to discard it immediately or return it to their local store for a full refund.

The recall was “out of an abundance of caution,” Aldi said in the statement. “Aldi takes the safety and integrity of the products it sells seriously.”

The company went on to remind consumers not to eat any raw products made with flour because milling wheat grown outdoors could carry a risk of bacteria. Aldi also told consumers to wash their hands, work surfaces, and utensils thoroughly after they come in contact with raw flour.

Consumers with questions are told to call ADM Milling Co. Customer Service at 800-422-1688.
