  • 4.5-lb. cases containing 3 trays with 8 pieces of “Egg Sausage and Cheese Wrapped in a Flour Tortilla.”

 The product subject to recall, which bears the establishment number “EST. 17523A” inside the USDA mark of inspection, was produced February 4, 2015 and shipped to a warehouse in Indiana for distribution to institutional customers.

The problem was discovered during a routine label review by the company which immediately notified FSIS. 

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the product. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.  

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact the company’s Consumer Line at (800) 772-6474. Media with questions about the recall can contact Pat Summers at (559) 285-1100.
