A Texas frozen food company is recalling 35,168 pounds of frozen ready-to-eat beef taquito products that are possibly contaminated with other  materials, specifically rubber with plastic, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Services. 

Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc., a company based in Lampasas that produces and sells frozen food products, is recalling its beef taquito items that were produced last Dec. 30 . 

The specific product being recalled are 60-oz. plastic bags inside of a corrugated carton labeled as “Jose Ole Taquitos Beef Carne De Res in Corn Tortillas Crispy and Crunchy” with a best by date of Dec. 30, 2017. 

The company discovered the problem after receiving two consumer complaints of foreign material in their ready-to-eat beef products on Mar. 14 and Mar. 21. The materials were pieces of rubber with white plastic that came from the company’s processing equipment.

In May 2016, the same company had to recall 47,112,256 pounds of  not-ready-to-eat meat and poultry products because some were possibly contaminated with listeria. 

There have been no complaints of illness after consuming these products, but customers are urged to throw away or return the recalled items. Items under the latest recall were shipped to California, Florida, Illinois, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wyoming.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall are asked to contact Paul Taylor, General Counsel, at (909) 477-4800.
