According to the USDA, the Beef Taquitos subject to recall bear establishment number “Est. M-5590” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in California, Florida, Illinois, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wyoming.

The problem was discovered when Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc. received two (2) consumer complaints of foreign material in its ready-to-eat beef products on March 14, 2017 and March 21, 2017.
