Menu Del Sol brand frozen bean and cheese burritos have been recalled in California and Nevada for possible Listeria contamination, the Food and Drug Administration announced.
Sigma Alimentos Congelados, which produced the burritos, voluntarily recalled 201 cases of frozen beans and cheese burritos that have 11 months of shelf life left. These burritos have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The recalled product is 2-packs of Menu Del Sol frozen burritos that was distributed in and sold through retail outlets in California and Nevada.
No illnesses have been reported to date. The potential contamination was found as a result of routine product testing, according to the recall notice.
Listeria is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, whereas such infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Consumers are asked to check for the lot code and “best by” date on the front of the label, which will be C3018 and March 1, 2018, written as “MAR01 18.”, respectively.
The company also urged the consumers to fully cook frozen food products according to package instructions.
Those who have purchased Menu Del Sol frozen beans and cheese burritos with the specified lot number and best by date are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
