Go-Go Taquitos Recalled for Salmonella and Listeria Contamination

Ruiz Food Products of Texas is recalling about 2,490,593 pounds of ready-to-eat Go-Go Taquitos made with meat and poultry because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella bacteria. This is a secondary recall of products made with foods produced by McCain Foods. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

The recalled products were made from July 1 through October 10, 2018. They include 4.5-pound cardboard cases containing 24-count Go-Go Taquitos “Beef Taco & Cheese Taquitos” with the case code 86183 printed on the label; 4.5-pound cardboard cases containing 24-count Go-Go Taquitos “Buffalo Style Cooked Glazed Chicken Taquitos” with a case code 86006 printed on the label; and 4.5-pound cardboard cases containing 24-count Go-Go Taquitos “Chipotle Chicken Wrapped in A Battered Flour Tortilla” with a case code 86019 printed on the label. These products all have the establishment number “17523A or P-17523A” and “45694 or P-45694” in the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to distributors nationwide.

If you bought these Go-Go Taquitos products, don’t eat them, even if you plan to heat them first. Discard them in a secure garbage can after you wrap them in foil or plastic wrap. You can also take them back to the store where you purchased them for a refund.

Then clean your refrigerator and/or freezer with a mild bleach solution, since Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures. Wash your hands well with soap and water after handling these products.

If you ate them, monitor yourself for illness for the next 70 days; that’s how long it can take for listeriosis to manifest. Symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning include fever, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Symptoms of listeriosis include fever, stiff neck and muscles, severe headache, and diarrhea.

      Make sure that the foods you bought have the best by dates, UPC numbers, and establishment numbers listed in the recall. If you ate them, watch yourself for the symptoms of food poisoning. If not, throw them away and wash your hands well.
