April 3, 2017 — A recall was issued for Menu Del Sol burritos sold in California and Nevada after a product tested positive for Listeria.
The burritos were manufactured by Sigma Alimentos, a Mexican company that sells refrigerated or frozen foods in the United States.
The recall involves 201 cases of frozen bean and cheese burrito 2-packs that were sold at retailers in California and Nevada. They have an 11-month shelf-life, with a “Best-By” date of March 1, 2018, so consumers may still have the contaminated products in their home.
The recalled burritos can be identified by the following information on the wrapper:
- Menu Del Sol frozen “Beans & Cheese Burritos” in 2-lb twin-packs with Lot #C3018, Best-By: “MAR01 18,” and UPC #45230-05601.
The problem was discovered during routine product testing. Consumers are urged to return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund.
No illnesses have been reported, but Listeria may not cause any symptoms for up to 70 days after eating contaminated food. Pregnant women often have no symptoms besides a miscarriage, premature birth, stillbirth, or other complications.
Healthy adults who are infected with Listeria may experience high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, nausea, and abdominal pain, sometimes preceded by diarrhea or vomiting.
