Well, if you ate an El Monterey egg, potato, bacon and cheese sauce breakfast wrap this morning for breakfast, you may also have consumed some small rocks. According to a press release from the Food Safety and Inspection Service, Ruiz Foods Products Inc., is recalling approximately 246,514 pounds of frozen, not ready-to-eat (NRTE) breakfast wrap products containing bacon because those breakfast wraps may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically small rocks. The problem was first reported on June 14th, when Ruiz Foods notified FSIS of several consumer complaints regarding foreign material in the wrap products.

So, the big question is...how do small rocks get into breakfast wraps? Well, at this point that's still not clear. According to the recall notice, Ruiz Foods is to continuing to investigate the source of the foreign material. Here are the breakfast wraps that are being recalled:

  • 8-Pack family size film packages containing “EL MONTEREY EGG, POTATO, BACON & CHEESE SAUCE BREAKFAST WRAPS” with “Best if Used By” dates of 01/17/2020 and 01/18/2020 and lot codes 19017 and 19018.
