Windsor Foods Recalls Beef & Bean Burritos

 Riverside, CA-based Windsor Foods has recalled approximately 2,268 pounds of beef and bean burrito products that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

Subject to recall are 18-pound bulk cases containing individually wrapped "BUTCHER BOY RED CHILE BEEF & BEAN BURRITOS."

Each case of Butcher Boy brand burritos, subject to recall, contains a total of 72 burritos and bears the establishment number "EST. 1905" within the USDA mark of inspection; the package code "1219215;" the case code "2080001;" and advises "KEEP FROZEN."

The products were produced on August 3, 2009 and distributed to a storage center in Minnesota for further retail sales. The products available for direct consumer purchase will not bear the establishment number and package code. Customers with concerns should contact their point of purchase.

FSIS promises to get back to us with a list of retailers that might be selling the bad burritos to the public.  We’ll see how that goes.

No illnesses are yet connected to this recall and it was the company that discovered the contamination.

    This recall does not include any other known brands does it? I recently got food poisoning from an El Monterey Beef and Bean burrito purchased in a family pack in Minnesota. I am concerned that it may not have just been food poisoning after reading this information.

    I ate a El Monterey Chimichanga yesterday at around 4pm at around 6pm I got very sick to my stomach. I could not even hold down water! I threw up so hard so many times I think I even cracked or Bruised a rib! I had to take anti nausea medicine just to stay hydrated. Today I’m no longer throwing up but I have a terrible headache. I havent gotten out of bed except for just now to see if this stuff has had any recalls. It was the only thing I had eaten yesterday due to having a really busy day. The number on the package is 11122 kk p-17523. I purchased it individually packaged from Fresh and Easy in Los Angeles just a week ago. Theres no expiration date on the individual package. I think it seems strange that these can be sold individually without having a expiration date on them. NEVER AGAIN!

    Well, add another name to the list of victims that El Monterey is getting sick with their disgusting product: I just had the most horrible two days of food poisoning from their burritos as well. I’m located in Berkeley CA.
    I wonder how many others are getting sick…
    I will never buy their products again.
