Over 200 cases of frozen bean and cheese burritos have been recalled due to the potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. Sigma Alimentos Congelados, the makers of Menu Del Sol burritos have voluntarily recalled the cases. The recalled products were distributed and sold in California and Nevada.
Although no illness has been reported as a result of product consumption, the potential contamination was found during routine product testing. The voluntary recall is being initiated out of an abundance of caution. Consumers are advised to fully cook all products according to the package instructions.
Listeria monocytogenes usually only causes short-term symptoms of high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea in healthy people. Fatal infections are possible in young children, those frail, elderly, or with weakened immune systems. Listeria infection has also been linked to miscarriages and stillbirths in those pregnant.
Only the following product is included in this recall:
|Frozen||Menu Del Sol||45230-05601 Burritos||Beans and Cheese||2 Lb||C3018|

This information includes the corresponding lot number (“LOT C3018”) and a best by date of March 1, 2018 (“BEST BY MAR01 18”).
