The problem was discovered on June 14, 2019, when Ruiz Foods advised FSIS of three consumer complaints regarding foreign material in the wrap products, said the company in a press release. The investigation to locate the source of the foreign material is ongoing.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Ruiz Foods’ Consumer Line at 1-800-772-6474.
