Riverside company recalls more than 2,000 pounds of beef-and-bean burrito product

Windsor Foods of Riverside is recalling 2,268 pounds of beef-and-bean burrito products that may be contaminated with the bacteria, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said today.

The Butcher Boy Red Chile Beef & Bean Burritos come frozen and individually wrapped inside 18-pound bulk cases, said the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Each of the 131 cases contains 72 burritos and features the establishment number “EST. 1905” inside the USDA mark of inspection, along with the package code “1219215” and the case code “208001.”

The products were produced Aug. 3 and distributed to a Minnesota storage center. From there, they were made available for sale, though the retail distribution lists are not yet available.

Windsor Foods discovered the problem, and there have been no reports of illness.

The bacteria can cause listeriosis, which is potentially fatal but rarely contracted by healthy people. However, it can cause high fevers, severe headaches, neck stiffness and nausea, as well as miscarriages and stillbirths.
