June 17, 2019 -- If you’re a fan of frozen breakfast burritos, you might want to check your freezer. Ruiz Foods is recalling more than 120 tons of its El Monterey egg, potato, bacon and cheese wraps because they may contain small rocks.

The company has received three complaints about the rocks in its breakfast wraps, and one report of a potential injury linked to eating them. It’s still investigating the source of the contamination.

The family-size packs of eight wraps have “best if used by” dates of 1/17/2020 and 1/18/2020, and lot codes 19017 and 19018. They were sold nationwide.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service is concerned people might still have the wraps in their freezers. If you do, don’t eat them. They should be tossed or returned to the place where you bought them for a refund.
