The recalled breakfast burrito has a lot code of 266, a SKU of 96132, a package code of A26616PFFG3, and a case code of 100-101280.

The product subject to recall bears establishment number EST. P-45574 located on the product packaging. This item was shipped to retail distribution centers in Illinois and Pennsylvania.

The problem was discovered on March 15, 2017 when the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) was notified by the company of three consumer complaints that were received on March 2, 3, and 9, 2017. Of the three complaints received by the company to date, only one reported minor oral injury associated with consumption of this product.
