Food Recall Warning: El Monterey Brand Taquitos And Tornados(R) Recalled

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/19/14 -- Product photos are available at http://bit.ly/1htTInJ

Industry is recalling El Monterey brand Taquitos and Tornados® from the marketplace because they are believed to pose a risk. Consumers should not consume the recalled products described below.

The recall was initiated by Ruiz Food Products, Dinuba, CA, USA. The manufacturer used some of the beef products which were recalled by Rancho Feeding Corporation, Petalama, California, USA on February 8, 2014 "because it processed diseased and unsound animals and carried out these activities without the benefit or full benefit of federal inspection." Therefore, these products are considered unsound, unwholesome or otherwise unfit for human consumption.

The following products have been sold nationally.
