Popular Line of Frozen Wraps Recalled After Injury
This past weekend, the El Monterey corporation issued a recall affecting over 246,000 pounds of their popular frozen breakfast wraps and burritos. The company stated that this recall came as the direct result of fears from the El Monterey corporation that their product may have been contaminated with small objects. Specifically, the corporation said that the objects one might now expect to find in certain types of its breakfast offerings were small rocks.
Rocks are not a breakfast staple anywhere in the world. In fact, there are numerous health issues associated with the eating of rocks. It is believed that the recall from El Monterey started after the El Monterey corporation received reports that at least one individual had sustained possible injury as a direct result of eating a rock-filled wrap or burrito.
As well as rocks, the wraps in question are known to be composed of eggs, potatoes, cheese, and various other ingredients. For those who have a package of El Monterey frozen wraps sitting in their freezer, it is highly advisable that you go and check on them now. What is the expiration date? If they lie between 01/17/2020 and 01/18/2020 then you should either discard them or take them back to the location where they were purchased, present the receipt of purchase, and accept either a refund or a product replacement. If the expiration date is difficult to locate, you can also discover whether or not your wraps are tainted using the lot code printed on every box. The lots included in the recall are 19017 and 19018.
Product recalls such as this one are difficult to enforce, and it is not uncommon for people to suffer from defective products well after a recall has been issued. The fact of the matter is that the company’s producing goods such as the El Monterey frozen wraps are supposed to ensure that their products are clear for delivery and consumption before they leave the factory. In the case discussed today, this quality control step was either not taken or simply failed to perform its sole function.
