Go-Go Taquito Recall
In October 2018, Ruiz Food Products, of Denison, Texas, announced a voluntary recall for nearly 2.5 million pounds of ready-to-eat Go-Go Taquitos that were sold at 7-Eleven.
The problem is that the diced onion ingredient may be contaminated with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.
There have been no confirmed reports of food poisoning illnesses in connection to the recalled taquitos, according to an announcement from the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
What Taquitos Were Recalled?
The recalled taquitos were produced from July 1 through Oct. 10, 2018. The following products are subject to recall:

Salmonella Food Poisoning
Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause severe and sometimes fatal food poisoning. The food may not look or smell spoiled, but it can still make you sick. The symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the tainted food.
Listeria Food Poisoning
Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that can cause severe, life-threatening food poisoning. The symptoms may include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, or convulsions. Pregnant women may suffer only minor flu-like symptoms before having a miscarriage, stillbirth, or infection of the newborn.
