There is a rich Hispanic culture in Denver. You can have authentic breakfast burritos delivered hot to your office by folks who will remember your name and what you like. So why anyone on the Front Range would stoop to buying their breakfast burritos at 7-Eleven is a mystery. Nevertheless, some do and now those people need to be concerned.
The 5.3-ounce packages of "7- ELEVEN Fresh to Go BURRITO WITH POTATOES, BACON, EGGS, & MONTEREY JACK CHEESE" with a "Best By" date of "Thursday 1225" have been recalled.
The products bear the establishment number "EST. 19496" inside the USDA mark of inspection. That’s the mark of Denver-based Home Fresh Sandwich Distributors, Inc., 7-Eleven’s supplier.
Home Fresh has recalled 172 pounds of its burrito product because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease.
It’s unclear how wide a geographic area Home Fresh covers for 7-Eleven. For more from the federal Food Safety and Inspection Service, go here.
