Your José Olé Tacquitos Might Have Rubber and Plastic in Them

Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc., the company that makes José Olé frozen taquitos, recalled about 35,168 pounds of the product due to possible contamination of rubber and plastic.

The Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said the issue came to light after two customers complained about finding pieces of rubber with white plastic in the taquitos earlier in March. The materials had come from the plant’s processing equipment.

According to FSIS, the frozen beef taquitos were produced on Dec. 30, 2016 and shipped to retail locations in California, Florida, Illinois, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wyoming.

FSIS said there were no reports of adverse reactions to the product and said people should throw away or return purchases of the taquitos.
