Put the burrito down and read this before you take a bite.

I am a huge breakfast burrito fan and was sad to see this story. Over 55,000 breakfast burritos have been recalled due to them possibly having "extraneous materials" in them. What extraneous materials? Well, plastic pieces in this case.

Ruiz Food Products Inc, issued the recall because of the possible plastic pieces in the food. They are the makers of the El Monterey burritos. Here is everything you need to know about the recall.


  • The recalled packages are in a 3.38-lb. Value Pack, containing 12 individually wrapped, 4.5-oz. “EL MONTEREY Signature BURRITO EGG, SAUSAGE & CHEESE” with a “Best if Used By” date of 01/15/2021 and a lot code of 19288.
  • The frozen, not ready-to-eat breakfast burrito products were produced on October 15, 2019
  • The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST 45694” printed on the value pack bag and the individual wrappings, next to the lot code.
  • These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
  • There have been three consumer complaints involving pieces of white, semi-rigid plastic found in the product.
