April 3, 2017 — Menu Del Sol burritos were recalled after a routine sample of a product tested positive for Listeria.
No illnesses have been reported, but the burritos have a long shelf-life and Listeria can take up to 70 days to cause symptoms.
The recall was issued by Sigma Alimentos is a Mexican company that sells frozen and refrigerated food at retail outlets in the United States. The company urges consumers to return the burritos for a full refund.
The company recalled 201 cases of 2-pack burritos sold in California and Nevada with “Best-By” dates of March 1, 2018 and an 11-month shelf-life, so consumers may still have the recalled burritos at home.
The product is Menu Del Sol frozen “Beans & Cheese Burritos” in 2-lb twin-packs with the following information printed on the wrapper: Lot #C3018, Best-By: “MAR01 18,” and UPC #45230-05601
Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that can survive freezing and grows in refrigerator temperatures. Infections are highly invasive and often spread beyond the intestines to the bloodstream, brain, or spinal cord.
Pregnant women may have no symptoms of infection with Listeria except a sudden miscarriage, premature birth, stillbirth, or other complications in a newborn baby.
Healthy adults may experience high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, nausea, and abdominal pain. These symptoms may occur after diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.
